The collection will feature a wide range of products based on six different patterns of Andy Warhol’s famous Camouflage paintings and prints. Warhol Conspiracy will consist of two seasonal assortments each featuring three camouflage patterns on jackets, shirts, shorts, socks, hats, hoodies, bags, backpacks, headphones and limited edition skateboards. Complementing the Warhol Camouflage will be a limited offering of t-shirts with Warhol quotes and self-portraits.
Warhol Conspiracy by WeSC will be available in the US, Canada and Asia, most of the products will also be available in Europe and worldwide through WeSC stores and distributors.
The unique collaboration will be available in stores starting in March 2015.
“WeSC is proud to present this product line in collaboration with The Andy Warhol Foundation. We have had many interesting artist and activist collaborations through the years but none of the collaborations have been as spot on for the brand for “Intellectual Slackers” asAndy Warhol’s Camouflages. Warhol is one of the original Intellectual Slackers and besides being one of the most important artists of all times, perhaps the most important, he is as relevant to contemporary culture today, 27 years after his death, as when he started. The Camouflage works were suggested as the most fitting for the WeSC collaboration by The Andy Warhol Foundation and we could not agree more. This is hopefully the first of a number of future “capsules” in collaborations inspired by leading artists, actors, writers and musicians that will strengthen our position as the original lifestyle brand,” says Theodor Dalenson, Chairman, of WeSC.
“We are delighted to work with WeSC to celebrate Andy Warhol’s creative, non-conformist spirit in a way that only WeSC can do,” saysMichael Dayton Hermann of The Andy Warhol Foundation. “The Foundation is proud to note that a portion of the proceeds from Warhol Conspiracy by WeSC will contribute generously to the Foundation’s endowment from which it supports contemporary art.”
