eBay watch: 1960s Andy Warhol Souper Dress


Not the cheapest item on eBay right now, but this 1960s Andy Warhol Souper Dress is one of the more interesting.

It's an icon of an era and original – in fact, it's even sold with the original envope it came in. Back in 1969, the dress, which is a screenprint on cellulose and cotton, was originally sold by Campbell's Soup on the back of the pop art success of Warhol's soup can artwork. You can see the original ad below.

It was just $1 back then, but is now in the permanent collection of the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Fashion Institute of Technology and the Andy Warhol Museum. So a good investment 40+ years back.

This example is described as being 'in excellent condition' and has 'never been hemmed or altered, and has no rips or tears'. Which is why the price tag is a little on the heavy side – if you want it for your permanent collection, you'll be looking at £1,531.75 on a 'Buy It Now'.
