calvin klein 205w39nyc andy warhol 1964 'electric chair' printed tshirt
raf simons’ short tenure at calvin klein is accented for his references towards american values and pop culture, with the collections consistently boasting a sense of american pride. this tee in particular deviates slightly from its usual approach, referencing celebrity artist andy warhol’s 1964 work titled ‘electric chair’.
andy warhol’s ‘death and disaster’ series collates images of car crashes or suicides as illustrated on the newspaper, screenprinted onto canvas with silver acrylic paint. the print chosen for the tee is one of the works in the aforementioned series, a grim and hallowing image of an empty chair that is made more surreal considering the title. features a pocket on the chest and a loose and wide fit.
