Calvin Klein and The Andy Warhol Foundation have debuted their latest collaboration, a capsule collection remixing the iconic American underwear with photos shot by the late artist. Titled “Andy Warhol: Exposures, ’77-’85”, the collection features four Warhol photos printed on tees, tanks, boxers, bralettes, and more. As the name suggests, Warhol’s selected images were shot between 1977 and 1985, and are a celebration of the human body — featuring anonymous males, shot nude.

For this collection, along with the signature “Calvin Klein”  logo, Warhol’s name is included on the waistband as well. Marking a continued collaboration between the two American legends, this underwear drop is the latest in a series of Warhol-motifs adopted by the brand.

According to Raf Simons, current chief creative officer of Calvin Klein, Warhol is one of the greatest creative minds to be birthed out of NYC in the 1970s. “I’ve come to realise that Warhol’s genius goes much deeper than cheerful Campbell’s Soup paintings,” Simons stated. “He captured all sides of the American experience, including sometimes its darker sides. Warhol’s art tells more truths about this country than you can find almost anywhere else."

The collection is available now. Be sure to get your hands on a pair, before they come a true collectors’ item.
