Andy Warhol, despite no longer being with us, continues to decorate the world with his iconic images adorning everything from luggage to beachwear. For the past decade, several manufacturers and designers have collaborated with the world’s best known pop-artists’ foundation to create products for the home and fashion for the body. And the collabs just keep coming.
Still Worshipping Warhol
Of course there are tons of Warholesque amateur creations on sites like Cafe Press and Zazzle, but I’m talking about actual authentic Warhol collaborations or Limited edition Warhol items.
Here’s just a few of the recent collaborations:
Fashion diva and designer Diane Von Furstenberg has a beautiful line of swimwear this summer in which she has 2 Warhol inspired flower beach towels and 2 cover ups.
Which go perfectly with her wonderful Warhol Flower Beach Cover-ups:
Nearly 40 years after Andy Warhol transformed Campbell’s soup cans into art form, Campbell celebrated the pop artist with limited edition soup cans bearing his colorful renditions of the classic tomato soup label. Campbell unveiled a special four-pack of Campbell’s tomato soup at Giant Eagle supermarkets. The pack features the Warhol-inspired labels instead of the trademark red and white labels that have adorned the can for more than 100 years.
Almost impossible to find now, try ebay.
German porcelain manufacturer Rosenthal has various lines of Warhol dishes and vases:
Launched in 2006, the Warhol Factory X Levi‘s label paid tribute to the pop-culture art made famous by the late American artist Andy Warhol.

A collaboration between the founder of Maharishi and Medicom yeilded detailed 12″ “Ultra Detail Figure” Andy Warhol Dolls from the sixties, seventies and eighties. They sold out long ago but you can find some vintage ones on ebay or various collectible toy stores.
Medicom also makes a little Andy Warhol Kubrick set:
