For those who don’t know, I’m obsessed with Andy Warhol. I tote around a small duffel bag in army green shades of the Flowers painting everytime I travel against all reason when a roll-a-board bag would be so much simpler (not to mention less strenuous). These Andy Warhol for Incase cases are making me wish I owned an iPhone or that they made them for BlackBerry’s. Anything the Andy Warhol foundation lends their namesakes’ craft to is usually a must-have for me. Never fear, I’m certifiably #TeamBlackBerry, but an iPad may be in my near future and one of these would be the perfect accompaniment.
Before that film Sienna Miller starred in in 2006 (Factory Girl), there was the real Edie Sedgwick. Muse to Andy Warhol and Bob Dylan, now bona-fide style icon, the artist-model-actress-socialite, Edie had a mod style that lives in infamy, complete with charcoal, messy eyeliner and cute little shift dresses. Creating the Edie Sedgwick eye means breaking a couple make up rules, like severely lining under the eye, and doing that thing they did in the sixties – putting eyeliner in the crease of the eye, the darker the black eyeliner the better. When you spend your days haunting factories, ceiling lights aren’t always at your fingertips and that Tiffany lamp is the perfect updated version of the sixties decor staple. She was the girl in black tights, and she always paired those black tights with something equally as chic, this tribal beaded shift dress from Catherine Malandrino is emblematic of quintessential Edie Sedgwick style. One of the most enviable traits of Edie’s style was her jewelry collection, she had a thing for over-sized chandelier earrings, and she’d have definitely loved this pair of Jelani earrings from Dannijo. I don’t smoke, never have and never will but these colorful Fantasia cigarettes from Nat Sherman are so chic, so cute, and so Edie.
An Andy Warhol pop art can that is…
Anna Wintour’s the most iconic editrix in the history of magazines as far as the modern fashion world is concerned, so iconic that she’s officially been immortalized in Andy Warhol-esque pop art t-shirts. Christopher Lee Sauvé has taken the style icon’s mugs, along with a few choice fashion world giants such as André Leon Talley, Karl Lagerfeld, and Donatella Versace, and channeled them into a customizable collection I can’t get enough of. Anna’s claimed on more than one occasion that she was a vintage tee and jeans kind of girl in her youth, but I doubt she’ll be caught wearing her own (C)Anna Wintour tee these days. Sauvé’s also adapted the faces of pop culture darlings like Betty White, Madonna, Marylin Monroe, Elvis, and Britney Spears. Pick a shirt, bag, dog sweater, or a pair of tighty-whities and then select a saying or iconic face to be screened onto it – this could get really perverse if we’re not careful.
