Calvin Klein releases Andy Warhol underwear collaboration
Calvin Klein can't stop and won't stop bringing on the heat in its new spicy underwear collection!
Just last week, we were graced with the absolutely beautiful Kardashian/Jenner Calvin Klein campaign that was quite the work of art itself. Now, Calvin Klein is going to continue its cultural side with the latest instalment to the brand's collection with a collaboration with Andy Warhol.
You can expect to see the favourite and classic white cotton underwear style we all know and love as well as featuring black and white stills from the artist's 1963 experimental film Kiss. The brand chose its inspiration from "one of Warhol’s earliest cinematic explorations". In his film Kiss, Warhol filmed 12 couples kissing in close-up, for three-and-a-half minutes each. This was a scandalous piece of art as Hollywood's censor ship at the time didn't allow for lips lingering in a kiss for more than three seconds.
The collection, which includes both mens and womens articles of clothing, isn't just limited to underwear. The art will appear on t-shirts and singlets featuring varying stills from the film, including a biracial couple that was quite the scandal at the time of the film's release.
This collection officially dropped yesterday on 5 February which you can purchase directly from the Calvin Klein website. You can also purchase Calvin Klein as a brand from official stockists like THE ICONIC, Myer and City Beach.
