40 years ago, Diane von Furstenberg created the famous wraparound dress , which helped her to write her name in the fashion history. Around the same time , in 1974, she posed for the great Andy Warhol . These memories are merged together in a capsule collection called Pop Wrap: a DVF and Andy Warhol Foundation Collaboration. Clothing and accessories from it , among which there is the famous wraparound dress , combine recognizable style features of Diane von Fürstenberg like Chain Link and Twigs prints with Warhol signature icons, flowers and dollar signs.
About her famous fashion items Diane said “I have had a very interesting relationship with the wrap dress because the truth is, it happened by accident. First it was a little wrap top inspired by what ballerinas wear, with a matching skirt, and then I made it into a dress.”
The collection includes the wrap dresses with various prints,a couple of sweaters, roomy bag and clutch. On some of these things are the backdrop motives of Warhol’s works which have become signature prints of Diane von Fürstenberg : black and white drawing which simulate the interlacing of the chain and a chaotic pattern of white lines on a contrasting background, similar to a leopard coloring.
“I am so excited to collaborate with The Warhol Foundation on a collection that embodies the spirit of Andy and DvF,” said von Furstenberg.
