The latest in CALVIN KLEIN’s unique, ongoing partnership with The Andy Warhol Foundation For the Visual Arts, the legacy of the storied Pop artist has made its way from the runway to CALVIN KLEIN JEANS—a fitting marriage of two icons of the American visual landscape. Embracing the egalitarian spirit for which Warhol was known, the offering will be composed of heritage-inflected denim.
These black straight-leg jeans were recently featured on Calvin Klein 205W39NYC’s American culture-inspired SS18 runway and feature Andy Warhol’s , in a yellow and black hue printed along the side of the leg.
They're crafted in Italy from cotton-denim with a mid-rise waist, antiqued gold-tone metal hardware and accented with tonal topstitching.
The Warhol print used is called 'Car Crash'.In 1962 Warhol began to cull images of tragic frontpage news stories. He silkscreened this image of a fatal car accident fourteen times. One version of this is held at MOMA in New York.
