Wear Andy Warhol Boxers with Warhol x WeSC
Another day, another Warhol collaboration. Earlier this month, the Andy Warhol Foundation teamed up with Converse on a series of soup can–emblazoned sneakers (see Andy Warhol x Converse Coming in February), and now they’re going skater-punk with WeSC, a company known for its skateboards and urban street wear.
According to a press release, the collection will be based on six different patterns from Warhol’s camouflage paintings and prints, which will decorate jackets, shirts, socks, hats, hoodies, bags, phone cases, headphones, and skateboards. You can even rock Warhol on your briefs—Andy Warhol boxers.
While we admit the camouflage print isn’t exactly the most distinctive (it’s not like Warhol invented it or is immediately associated with it in the same sense of the soup can), what impresses us is the sheer breadth of the offerings in this collaboration. Why settle for just wearing sneakers that bear tribute to one of contemporary art’s most iconic artists when you can outfit your entire wardrobe with Warhol?
For those that wish to do just that, the collection will be available online and through a variety of WeSC distributors in the US, Canada, Asia, and Europe beginning in March.
