Fashion Inspired by Art: Piet Mondrian

14 Aug

Don Mondrian

It goes without saying – fashion and art has long been intertwined, and there are many instances of art-meets-fashion collaborations in the industry:

In 2012, famed footwear designer, Jimmy Choo, collaborated with contemporary artist, Rob Pruitt, to create a capsule collection.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress. To celebrate this milestone, the designer created a special edition “pop-wrap” collection inspired by Andy Warhol’s 1964 flower series.

The most prolific (and my personal favorite) art-meets-fashion moment is the series of color-blocked shift dresses created by Yves Saint Laurent in 1965, inspired by artist Piet Mondrian. Even to this day, the iconic work by Dutch artist Piet Mondrian continue to serve as inspiration to designers (in both fashion and interior design).

    Awesome. Fashion & design are both arts too, so I like when designers draw references from paintings & architecture. :] // ☼

      Me too! I find that the collections that are inspired by art & architecture are the most imaginative, beguiling, beautiful and all that other good stuff =)

    I love how art and fashion combine here. This is like extreme color blocking! 🙂

      This is my fave instance of when the two -(art & fashion) were coupled together!

    Art imitating life or life imitating art? I love seeing the Piet Mondrian references pop-up in fashion, it really is extreme colour-blocking!

      I agree – extreme color-blocking but in the best possible ways!
