The American fashion house teamed up with the Andy Warhol Foundation at the end of last year for a four-year partnership that will give Raf Simons, a chief creative officer of Calvin Klein, and Calvin Klein unprecedented access to the Pop artist’s archives.
That sort of access is new for an industry that has often leaned on lower-hanging fruits. In the age of Instagram, bold-faced projects with household names often get the lion’s share of the buzz, but Simons is out to change that.
The designer is an art lover and collector—he has a Picasso and a Cindy Sherman in his personal trove—and the way he deploys artworks in his collaborations reflects a deep respect for the artist.
“I’ve come to realize that Warhol’s genius goes much deeper than cheerful Campbell’s Soup paintings,” said Simons. “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.”
