Following in the footsteps of Levi Strauss & Co. (the first denim brand to use the Andy Warhol prints in their â€˜Warhol Factory X’ denim collection a couple of years ago), Pepe Jeans London is creating a 250-piece denim and accessory collection inspired by Andy Warhol’s artistic style.
The Andy Warhol Collection by Pepe will consist of two separate collections , Pop and Factory (it all sounds a bit Sienna Miller, doesn’t it?) , and will include both men and women’s looks.
Pop will draw on Andy’s iconic pop images such as the Campbell’s Soup Cans and The Two Marilyns, and Factory will be based more on his personal style. Think Edie Sedgwick and Candy Darling.
For me, the highlight of the collection is the graphic denim dresses in A-line shapes, all approved by the Andy Warhol Foundation, of course. You can expect flowery prints, bright colours and funky graphics.
Sadly it will only be available in Europe (this seems to be the latest trend amongst collaborators), so if you’re from out of town you might be spending a bit more on these pieces than your average pair of Pepe’s.
