“This collection will draw upon various drawings and paintings made throughout Tom of Finland’s artist career, integrating them with Carne Bollente’s iconic embroideries and prints. This special collaboration continues to not only reflect our desire to present the artist to new generations but to highlight the humouristic part of his work, a hidden side which was lesser known to the public eye.”

As Tom of Finland consistently defended sex-positivity through his art, fighting for LGBTQI+ rights. The artist and activist not only affirmed his own Gay sexual identity but glamourised it which gives significant confidence to Gay men at a time when many had internalised homophobia and sexual guilt. Therefore, it is an important and also absolute honour to work with Tom of Finland Foundation again.

This time, the collection includes not only tee shirts and hoodies but also other exciting items such as jackets, knit tops, blankets and beach towels.
