Warhol to a T
For its new line of 15 T-shirts The Warhol sought
the guidanceof two young Pittsburgh-based
designers, B.J. Anzevino and Richard Florence, of Anzevino & Florence.
We chose the bolts of cotton, decided on cuts, fabric
dye, and printing,” says the museum’s
Brand Manager Rick Armstrong, “and then we
sourced a seamstress in Los Angeles who is able to
dolarge production runs. The trend in T-shirts is
to use superfine material, and the new signature
label Warhol shirts are made of the creamiest, 100
percent, jersey cotton available. They’re really
comfortable.” They can be hand- or machine-washed
and tumble dried, and retail for $28 to $30.
The designs feature
both Warhol images and Warhol quotations. Among
the images are Edie Sedgwick, Airplane and Car, and
Carat (featuring a drawing of a radiant diamond ring),
and the “
quote” shirts include one with the famous
will be famous for 15 minutes.”
The new T-shirts
are available at The Warhol Store, online at
www.warhol.org, and are being wholesaled internationally.
