When you’re talking about Pop Art from the 1960s, it doesn’t get much more iconic than the comic strip based art of Roy Lichtenstein. Now, in a partnership with Lichtenstein’s estate, the Art Production Fund, Barneys New York is offerings a limited edition collection of summer home goods and beach accessories (like this beach bag based on “Kiss IV”) this summer.
Among the legendary Lichtenstein art utilized for the Barneys collection include “Ice Cream Soda” (1962), “Kiss IV” (1963), “Baked Potato” (1962), “Bananas and Grapefruit I” (1972), and many more.
“This collaboration has been in the works for some time,” said Barneys CEO Mark Lee. “It’s very exciting for us to mesh Barneys’ appreciation of art with our desire to bring exclusive and limited-edition product to our customers.”
Barneys plans to donate 25% of all sales from the collection to benefit the Art Production Fund, a non-profit founded by Yvonne Force Villareal and Doreen Remen and directed by Casey Fremont Crowe which supports public art projects.
The collection will retail between $28 and $295 (the Kiss beach tote retails for $85) and will be available at the Barneys New York Madison Avenue flagship, as well as Beverly Hills, Chicago, Miami and Barneys.com.
