Bugaboo Banana Stroller ~ The New Collaboration With Andy Warhol
Food seems to be the new design trend for baby gear. First Jeremy Scott debuted his “Food Fight” collaboration with Cybex and now bugaboo has gone bananas with their Bugaboo + Andy Warhol Banana Collection. Yes, that’s right – a banana stroller!
This is Bugaboo’s second collaboration with Andy Warhol, last year they released a very colourful selection of pieces that I liked quite a bit. This one is definitely unique… Inspired by Warhol’s legendary print
Bugaboo continues the exciting collaboration with the Andy Warhol Foundation of the Visual Arts. May 2014 Bugaboo will introduce the Bugaboo + Andy Warhol Banana collection, inspired by Warhol’s legendary print created in 1966 and chosen to adorn the first album cover of The Velvet Underground and Nico, a rock and roll band.
According to bugaboo,
“Bugaboo’s newest collection celebrates this rebellious, Rock n Roll attitude. Bugaboo takes Warhol’s thoughts back to its origins by turning an everyday object into a piece of art.”
This Andy Warhol + Bugaboo Cameleon³ Banana combines the Warhol Banana print in black onto a striking and outspoken yellow base and a black chassis. The all-over print covers the sun canopy and continues on both the bassinet and backside of the seat fabric.
You can also customize your current stroller with Bugaboo’s Banana Accessories are available for all Bugaboo strollers with the Andy Warhol + Bugaboo Banana footmuff (made from water repellent material and bamboo charcoal, an eco-friendly and sustainable fiber extracted from wild bamboo regulates temperature and humidity and provides more comfort during chilly months).
You can also purchase a padded off-white Bugaboo Seat Liner, which also features the iconic ‘Banana’. The seat liner has an extra top layer made from bamboo charcoal that wicks away moisture.
This special collection will be available in-store in May 2014 and available for order as of April 2014 for a period of approximately 6 months or while supply lasts. The price will run at € 69.95 / £ 54.95 / AU$ 99.95 / $ 79.95.

The app is an interactive adaptation of Andy Warhol’s So Many Stars board book that was originally included with the previous So Many Stars Andy Warhol + Bugaboo collection. The app encourages children to touch images on the various pages to make dogs grow, eat spaghetti and letting fish jump out of the water. The app is available now through the App Store for USD $1.99. Revenue generated by the sale of the app will contribute generously to The Andy Warhol Foundation’s endowment from which it distributes grants in support of contemporary art.
