Still Worshipping Warhol: DVF, Maharishi, Steiff, CB2 and More Make Andy Warhol Products





Andy Warhol, despite no longer being with us, continues to decorate the world with his iconic images adorning everything from luggage to beachwear. For the past decade, several manufacturers and designers have collaborated with the world's best known pop-artists' foundation to create products for the home and fashion for the body. And the collabs just keep coming.

Of course there are tons of Warholesque amateur creations on sites like Cafe Press and Zazzle, but I'm talking about actual authentic Warhol collaborations or Limited edition Warhol items.

Here's just a few of the recent collaborations:

Fashion diva and designer Diane Von Furstenberg has a beautiful line of swimwear this summer in which she has 2 Warhol inspired flower beach towels and 2 cover ups.



The towels:


Which go perfectly with her wonderful Warhol Flower Beach Cover-ups:


all of which can be purchased here.

Maharishi gets together with the Andy Warhol Foundation (again) as part of their Spring 2009 Collection. Using Andy's famous dollar graphic, filled with an Andy Warhol camouflage:

Not so recent collaborations:

Nearly 40 years after Andy Warhol transformed Campbell's soup cans into art form, Campbell celebrated the pop artist with limited edition soup cans bearing his colorful renditions of the classic tomato soup label. Campbell unveiled a special four-pack of Campbell's tomato soup at Giant Eagle supermarkets. The pack features the Warhol-inspired labels instead of the trademark red and white labels that have adorned the can for more than 100 years.

Almost impossible to find now, try ebay.

German porcelain manufacturer Rosenthal has various lines of Warhol dishes and vases:

Launched in 2006, the Warhol Factory X Levi's label paid tribute to the pop-culture art made famous by the late American artist Andy Warhol. Priced between $190-$250 for jeans and $80-$300 for tops, the said collection is only available at such high-end stores as Barneys New York, Fred Segal and American Rag.




In 2007, Burton snowboards and ski wear collaborated with the Warhol foundation to come up with a limited collection that included softgoods and hardgoods like parkas, bindings, luggage and snowboards. Mostly sold out, you can still find some items on ebay or in various ski stores.
