Warhol’s Latest Collaborations

The Andy Warhol Foundation has kept itself busy with a number of new brand collaborations, fresh off the heels of the incredibly successful NARS Andy Warhol collection.

This summer, Perrier Sparkling Natural Mineral Water will launch a series of limited-edition bottles inspired by Warhols’s Perrier bottle screen print series from the 1980s in honor of the brand’s 150th anniversary. While over 40 works featuring the Perrier bottle were produced in 1983, the brand is now offering glass bottles featuring four different label designs pulling from seven different Warhol inspirations from the series, overlayed by some of the artist’s famous quotes. The collection will be available beginning June 24th wherever Perrier is sold.

And for all the moms out there, Bugaboo—the high-end stroller company, products by which can often be spotted in NYC’s Tribeca or Upper East Side neighborhoods—has also collaborated with the Warhol Foundation to launch two stroller accessories collections inspired by Warhol’s flowers and cars silk screen series. Bugaboo has successfully collaborated on limited edition designs before, but partners have stemmed mostly from the fashion world, including Missoni, Marc Jacobs, and Viktor & Rolf. The collections hit stores in May, and the brand intends to launch a second edition with the AWF this fall.

In the meantime, here are a few avant-garde ensembles that are undeniably deserving of placement on a museum pedestal:
