We’ve already been provided a glimpse of what’s to come vis-a-vis Calvin Klein’s 205W39NYC spring 2018 show held during New York Fashion Week that included items made in collaboration with Warhol’s foundation. The label showed several pieces printed with Warhol portraits of Dennis Hopper and Sandra Brant.
“I’ve come to realize that Warhol’s genius goes much deeper than cheerful Campbell’s Soup paintings,” said Raf Simons in a press release. “He captured all sides of the American experience, including sometimes its darker sides. Warhol’s art tells more truths about his country than you can find almost anywhere else.”
As part of the agreement, the Andy Warhol Foundation will give Calvin Klein and Simons unprecedented access to the artist’s archives, including some of his unseen pieces.
