Pop goes the shift dress. Following her 2010 capsule collection that featured Carl Fischer and Nat Finkelstein‘s photos of Andy Warhol and Edie Sedgwick, mod maven Lisa Perry has debuted a limited-edition line of dresses and tees printed with images by Roy Lichtenstein. The fashion designer secured the approval of the artist’s estate to use “No Thank You” (1964), “On” (1962), and “Spray” (1962) on a trio of cotton twill shifts that retail for $2,000 each at her bright and peppy Madison Avenue store. Those not in the market for one of the 99 suitable-for-framing frocks can opt for a $75 t-shirt or tank printed with Lichtenstein’s “Keds” (1961), “Hot Dog with Mustard” (1963), or “Compositions I” (1964), a black-and-white speckled iPad alternative that begs to be worn on the first day of school. A portion of the proceeds from the collection will benefit the Parrish Art Museum in Southampton, New York.
