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.

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.
