Billabong announces Warhol Surf, an exclusive apparel and accessory collaboration with one of the world’s most iconic artists, Andy Warhol.
The collaboration comes through Billabong LAB, a division of the company that supports artists, musicians, designers, photographers and surf icons, and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, a non-profit organisation recognised as one of the leading funders of contemporary art in the United States. Warhol once said “I came out of the womb on a surfboard.”
Warhol Surf showcases Andy Warhol’s little-known fascination with surf culture and is rooted in a mutual desire to challenge convention – a driving force found in both Warhol’s work and Billabong’s product innovation.
The collection features a range of surf-inspired products for men and women including boardshorts, swimwear, tops, tees and accessories, born as a result of combining Andy Warhol’s iconic art with Billabong founder Gordon Merchant’s original designs and signature silhouettes.
