Tom of Finland Foundation partners with CDLP



Tom of Finland partners with Swedish premium underwear company CDLP for a limited-edition Tanga brief and jockstrap. The elegant underwear is packed in beautiful boxes featuring two different drawings by Tom of Finland, the creator of the most iconic erotic gay visuals.

“Tom’s influence on fashion and imprint on popular culture is undeniable. Designers that include Jean-Paul Gaultier, Tom Ford and Helmut Lang have been influenced by his work. This collaboration marks how fantasy can come to life.”—Durk Dehner, co-founder of Tom of Finland Foundation.

Some of the proceeds of this collaboration benefit the Tom of Finland Foundation. This collaboration celebrates the art of the most controversial gay illustrator and properly honours his memory. One of the primary goals of the Foundation is to promote Tom’s work along with other erotic art so that it receives the academic attention it deserves. It’s not the first time the Foundation carefully collaborates with retail companies, in 2017 the Tom of Finland Vodka was launched.
