The Mondrian Look of Yves Saint Laurent


Vogue Pattern Fashion News, 1966

Vogue 1556: A marvelous this-moment dress, very young....with high yoke, hem band and sleeve cuffs in perfectly proportioned contrast.


Vogue 1557: The geometrics of Mondrian. Young, bold proportions of black and white-rectangle of color-hemlines ruled-this is the terse, crisp look of young dressing.

Ohhh, I love the Mondrian dresses! I had a knockoff and it got ravaged by moths. I'm always on the lookout for a new one... I wish i could sew!

I love these, I found the pattern a couple of decades ago and made them for my sis and I. Pictures here http://www.carmencitab.com. I made the long version, so we have to just stand there and look pretty. Funny!
