Luxury specialty retailer Barneys New York has partnered with the estate of pop artist Roy Lichtenstein and Art Production Fund to launch a limited-edition collection of home goods. The collection is available exclusively this summer at Barneys New York.
The summer-themed collection includes trays, placemats, china dishes, glasses, paper plates, paper cups, pillows, flying discs, pool floats, water bottles, and beach accessories, including bags, towels, and beach balls covered in Lichtenstein’s iconic Pop Art images of the ’60s, ’70s, and beyond. Lichtenstein original artwork utilized for this special collaboration includes Ice Cream Soda (1962), Drawing for Kiss IV (1963), Baked Potato (1962), Bananas and Grapefruit I (1972), and much more.
In addition to the collection, Barneys New York will dedicate its famed windows to Roy Lichtenstein with an installation conceived by Barneys Creative Director Dennis Freedman .
“Barneys New York is thrilled to partner with the estate of Roy Lichtenstein and Art Production Fund,” said Mark Lee, Chief Executive Officer, Barneys New York. “This collaboration has been in the works for some time. 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, including our Chelsea Passage customers.”
25% of all sales from the collection will benefit 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 and will be available at the Barneys New York Madison Avenue flagship, as well as Beverly Hills, Chicago, Miami and Barneys.com.
