Lisa Perry is enamored of all things Pop Art. After all, the designer collects Warhol and other '60s artists, and she even displays a Jeff Koons diamond sculpture on her balcony.

So it's only appropriate that Koons, the modern inheritor of the Pop mantle, would join up with Perry for a fashion collaboration. The artist is no stranger to the world of fashion and beauty, having lensed a shoot for Harper's Bazaar's September issue, designed special-edition Kiehl's lotions, and frequented the front rows of Edun and Stella McCartney.

A Thursday night dinner celebrating the launch drew an art-meets-fashion crowd that included Tory Burch, Yvonne Force Villareal and W Editor-in-Chief Stefano Tonchi.

“He gave us full access to his entire body of work,” Perry said in a statement. “It was more inspiration than I could have ever dreamed of!”

The 13-piece collection includes a jacket emblazoned with Koons' famed Rabbit sculpture and dresses based on the artist's 1988 "Pink Panther" sculpture and his "Monkey Train" series. Handbags and jewelry will start at $295, while RTW will range from $150 to $4,500. (Hey, no one said wearable art came cheap!)
