Currently available at Voo Store, CDLP and the Tom of Finland have collaborated on limited edition underwear for the upcoming festive seasons. Creative director of CDLP, Christian Larson has bought back to life the now-iconic drawings from Touko Valio Laaksonen, in the form of a tank top and a jock-strap. Available in white and black, respectively, the pieces were inspired by paper art pieces from the works of the Tom of Finland legend.
Tom of Finland, which is recognized as one of the greatest visual innovators of the 20th century and is the creator of some of the most iconic, unrestrained, and readily recognizable imagery of contemporary gay culture. Through his work, Tom unapologetically celebrated male beauty, self-love, and style, fighting against archaic discrimination and sexual oppression. As he confronted the stigmas and stereotypes that burdened homosexual desire, his portrayals of empowered sexuality proved liberating on social and aesthetic levels alike.
