Just in time for warm weather urban grazing, Comme des Garçons launches its Andy Warhol x Comme des Garçons capsule collection today. The unisex collection consists of T-shirts, footwear, and accessories decorated with Warhol prints: from polka-dotted Self-Portraits (1986) to his 1966 Cow Wallpaper.
Warhol’s first wall covering, Cow Wallpaper‘s original iteration featured extra-large cow heads in bright pink against a bright yellow background. This unabashedly garish take on the pastoral, inspired by a suggestion from art dealer Ivan Karp, marked the start of a decorative series Warhol continued into the 1980s, which included Mao (1974), Fish (1983), Washington Monument (1974), and Self-Portrait (1978).
Comme des Garçons brings Warhol’s Flowers (1964-65) to bloom on a T-shirt, puts the cows on classic sneakers, and splices the creatures with Rei Kawakubo’s favorite kaleidoscopic checks for a brilliant backpack.
Available at Comme des Garçons in Paris, NY, Bankok, Seoul, Hannam, Manilla, Hong Kong, and I.T Beijing Market. Prices range from $165 to $494.
