Carne Bollente Releases Sexy, Covetable Tom of Finland Collaboration
If you're a Tom of Finland fan, you'll probably want to grab one of these.
The Paris-based brand Carne Bollente has teamed up with the Tom of Finland Foundation on a series of shirts, sweatshirts, and totes that are quickly selling out. Made in Portugal, the collaboration is the latest in a string of link-ups from Tom of Finland Foundation.
Bollente created a new nude logo, embroidered on some of the shirts in the range. "Through his art, Tom always defended sex positivity and fought for LGBT+ rights," the brand said in a statement. "He affirmed and glamorized gay sexuality; giving confidence to gay men at a time when many had internalized homophobia and sexual guilt. His imagery turned upside down the cliches that gays were weak. It portrayed gay men as strong and desirable, which was refreshing and empowering. This collaboration reflects our desire to introduce this artist to new generations but also to highlight the humoristic part of his work less known from the public."
