Vintage 1960's Andy Warhol Soup Can Paper Dress & Some Designer Shoes



In the 1960's Andy Warhol designed a "High-Fashion" Paper Dress covered with multiple images of his famous Campbell's Tomato Soup Can art. These are quite RARE today. In fact, both collectors of Fine Art & Vintage Clothing collectors really love this item. They pop-up on eBay every now & then. I think it would be cool to have one framed flat for the wall. The next photo is a pair of "Soup Can" designer shoes made just a few years ago. They're handmade & very nice quality ( that means "expensive", ha ha! ). I don't think they were sanctioned by The Warhol Estate but made by some Mod-Style Shoe Designer as an homage to Andy. They're pretty cool though. Something that's kinda funny is I remember reading in THE ANDY WARHOL DIARIES book about how when he did autograph events people would just shove cases of Campbell's Soup Cans in his face for him to sign & later he remarked, "Oh God, I am so sick of these cans"! Like as if he saw another can he would just barf, ha ha!
