A new line of shirts designed in Pittsburgh will be sold at The Warhol Store, online, and in stores internationally.






It’s 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 line, “Everyone 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.
