CDLP × TOM OF FINLAND! A new underwear collaboration
#WANT! Today CDLP and Tom of Finland Foundation are launching a new underwear collaboration. The items will become available at Voo Store Berlin by the end of the week. And over the CDLP online store. This launch is the first-ever underwear collaboration for the Tom of Finland Foundation.
CDLP founders Christian Larson and Andreas Palm, noted that the underwear—a fashion feature seen throughout his hedonistic liberation, and in effect designed by Tom of Finland—had never been directly conceived into reality. It was these very depictions that provided the design inspiration behind a limited edition Jock Strap and Tanga —presented in black and white respectively—a fitting tribute to the monochromatic palette of the art.
Transcending product, the project explores a shared Nordic spirit deeply rooted in ideals of male confidence and a rebellion against the traditional. Founded in 2016, CDLP can be found at retailers including Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman, Illum, Lane Crawford, Mr. Porter, Selfridges, and Totokaelo.
“Tom’s influence on fashion and imprint on popular culture is undeniable. Designers that include Jean-Paul Gaultier, Tom Ford and Helmut Lang have been influenced by his work. This collaboration marks how fantasy can come to life.”—Durk Dehner, co-founder of Tom of Finland Foundation.
