Andy Warhol is perhaps the most famous artist in the Pop Art scene. Most people can recognize his art everywhere because of its distinct characteristics and vibe. Warhol art is something you can’t take out of the pop culture scene as we believe the artist’s work will be used and displayed for the years to come.
The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts has recently teamed up with Herschel to develop a new collection. This is the first Herschel collaboration we’re featuring here. It’s something artists and creatives will be happy to check out since it’s Andy Warhol.
The Andy Warhol x Herschel Collection features three of the artist’s most iconic images: blooming hibiscus flowers, cows, and bananas. The images are used on four Herschel Supply’s signature bags: the Nova Mid-Volume Backpack, Little America Backpack, Settlement Backpack, and the Seventeen Hip Pack. The hibiscus flowers are splashed onto a Settlement, Seventeen Hip Pack, a Nova Backpack, and a Little America Backpack. The bags feature the Flowers, one of Andy Warhol’s earliest entries into Pop art. The hibiscus flowers are set in vivid colors and high contrast that they look very vibrant even from afar. This particular pattern explores Warhol’s connection with nature, so this series may be something nature-lovers will enjoy.
The Cow print was produced as wallpaper originally in 1966. The design is being used now on the Herschel bags but only on some parts of each bag. The famous print is applied against a black fabric for a nice contrast. The Banana, also from 1966, is a Pop art screen print that can be considered one of Warhol’s famous works. The yellow banana is set against black, joining a black-and-white striped print on some parts of the bags.
The bags come with 100% recycled fabric liner with Andy Warhol’s signature print. Most of them have a zippered front pocket with a waterproof zipper, except for the Little America Backpack. Herschel has made use of recycled webbing, as well as textured rubber straps with metal pin buckles and magnetic fastenings.
Andy Warhol said, “Art is what you can get away with, ” and with these bags, you can definitely get away to a new adventure wherever, whenever. The Andy Warhol x Herschel Supply products are now listed on Herschel.com. You can buy now so no need to wait for the release.
