Fashion imitates Art once again
As I was browsing through New Look’s website, I came across a dress (first image) that immediately reminded me of the whole Neoplasticism movement that started in the Netherlands in 1917. The Stijl meaning ‘style’ in dutch best known artist is abstract painter Piet Mondrian (1899- 1944 ) and he keeps inspiring us until today. I did some research and found out that in the 60’s Yves Saint Laurent did a ‘Mondrian’ day dress as an evolution of the sack dress. Neoplasticism has been inspiring people up until today, isn’t Art grand?
Do you still remember the Loreal Studio line packaging? Yup Mondrian, rocking it since 1899🙂
