Andy Warhol + Bugaboo

The Warhol Foundation and Bugaboo release The Banana Collection

Andy Warhol + Bugaboo

It's time to go bananas! Andy Warhol + Bugaboo have released the next instalment in their multi-year collaboration, and it's a rather fruity one. Since their first release last year, which we reported on, the Bugaboo and Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts partnership have also released the Happy Bugs collection. Now they move from one 'b' to another with the launch of The Banana Collection.

Bright, bold and, well, yellow, the Bugaboo + Andy Warhol Banana collection is the perfect companion for summer baby arrivals. Plastered in Warhol's iconic banana print from 1966 that was used as the fist album cover of The Velvet Underground and Nico, this pushchair is certainly one to make mummy and daddy stand out from the crowd at day care – or anywhere for that matter.

Bananas For Bugaboo Accessories

The all-over print adorns the Bugaboo Cameleon3, combining it with a sunny yellow base and a black chassis. For those who have already purchased their Bugaboo and are getting ready to make like a banana and split – don't. The collaboration has created a special set of Banana collection accessories to allow everyone to pimp their Bugaboo pushchair wheels with a little Warhol pop art. 

The two accessories allow Warhol fans to keep the arty edge to their parenting in both summer and winter. The Andy Warhol + Bugaboo Banana footmuff is the rock n' roll way to keep your little one snug and warm in the cooler months. Curated from the eco-friendly and sustainable fibre bamboo charcoal, the material naturally regulates temperature and humidity – keeping baby at the optimum temperature while exploring or having a snooze in the stroller. If moving inside to get away from the cold, the cover of the footmuff can be partially or wholly removed to ensure things don't get too toasty.

But what about summer? That's where the Andy Warhol + Bugaboo Banana seat liner comes. Padded and breathable, it's perfect for summer when baby is wearing less layers. Bamboo charcoal is integrated here, as well as an extra top layer, because its natural properties lend themselves to wicking away moisture.

This is one banana with which you can stroll, rather than slip on.
