Raf, himself an avid collector of his work, likes to incorporate prints by the famous American Pop-Art artists Andy Warhol in his work. During his short tenure at Calvin Klein, he used various prints on different pieces like bags, jackets, coats and denim (please see our catalogue for further examples of this practice).
On this specific piece, the print is a black and white "Car Crash" one from his "Death and Disaster" silkscreens from the 60s. Those works are now in the most prestigious collections all around the world and are considered to be a peak in his career.
This specific bag is finished in heavy and steady cotton and has one big inside pocket. The quality is exceptional.
Pieces from Calvin Klein 205w39nyc, especially accessories and outerwear, are slowly but surely increasing in price, as more and more collectors show growing interest in the line.
