Art imitating Life?

1966 Andy Warhol paper dress

1965 Yves St Laurent mini dress inspired by Piet Mondrian

Two striking designs using simple silhouette, minimal style features but distinctive patterning inspired by art, nature and food.

Mondrian reduced lines and colours to their simple roots. Often inspired by nature and especially trees, he produced graphic images with a sustained appeal, ideal for the 60's and today.

Andy Warhol earned his living as a visual merchandiser whilst he was an art student. His vivid interpretations of the consumer society in the 60's was highly original then and just as relevant today.
