It claims serial art collaborator, Raf Simons, as its Chief Creative Officer – which is why Calvin Klein Jeans' Andy Warhol capsule collection is really one that we should have seen coming…

Back in November last year, the Belgian designer – whose namesake menswear portfolio boasts partnerships with Peter Saville and the Robert Mapplethorpe Estate, and has also previously utilised Andy Warhol’s early drawings during FW13 whilst serving at Christian Dior – signed a four-year agreement with The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, which granted him free creative reign to license the artist’s seminal creations (including never-before-published works) across the expansive Calvin Klein collections.

Following an underwear capsule printed with stills from the experimental film Kiss (1963), the latest instalment arrives across a Calvin Klein Jeans range and features candid self-portraits of the Pop Art icon himself. The signature bright, acrylic paint and screen-printed depictions that span the years 1977 to 1986 can now be found upon the back pockets of heritage jeans; blown-up and transferred onto T-shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies; creeping up and along the sides of canvas high-top sneakers; and decorating accessories that, really, belong in a gallery.

Demonstrate your cultural nous, and embrace the collision of fashion and art with two legendary symbols of America’s visual landscape.
