Many years ago, Diane von Furstenberg and Andy Warhol hooked up at Studio 54. Not that type of hookup, silly! DVF posed for one of Warhol's iconic portraits (see below). Once again, the designer will be collaborating with the late artist, through The Andy Warhol Foundation, to create a 2008 Resort and 2009 pre-Spring swimwear collection featuring Warhol's prints.
“Andy’s Pop colors and iconic images feel glamorous and right for beach,” said von Furstenberg. The collection of beach-worthy items will use bright hues and big-leaf colors printed on bikinis, caftans, and one-piece suits. “Andy and I were contemporaries, so it feels right,” said von Furstenberg.
