The Souper Paper dress



1960s "The Souper Dress" Andy Warhol Campbell's Soup Paper Dress

This is the 1960's Campbell's Soup dress that was inspired by the work of Andy Warhol. These were produced by Campbell's Soup as an effective advertising campaign when paper dresses were all the rage in the 60s. A classic example where fashion, art and industry intersect into one image. This A-line dress is printed with the Campbell's Soup red, black and white labels. At the back of the neckline is the original attached label that reads: "The Souper Dress/No Cleaning/ No Washing/ It's carefree fire resistant unless washed or cleaned/To refreshen, press lightly with warm iron/80% Cellulose, 20% Cotton".

This dress is owned by The Metropolitan Museum of Art Collection, the Andy Warhol Museum, FIT, as well as other museums and collectors around the world. This is a wonderful museum piece or a wonderful piece for the vintage fashion collector.
