Yves St. Laurent “Mondrian” dress via The Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art
"As the sack dress evolved in the 1960s into a modified form, the shift, Saint Laurent realized that the dress’s planarity was an ideal field for color blocks. Knowing the flat planes of the 1960s canvases acheived by contemporary artists in the lineage of Mondrian, Saint Laurent made the historical case for the artistic sensibility of his time. Yet he also demonstrated a feat of dressmaking, setting in each block of jersey, piecing in order to create the semblance of the Mondrian order and to accomodate the body imperceptibly by hiding all the shaping in the grid of seams."
