It’s Pure Geometry

 Designers are constantly inspired from exposure to culture, original artwork, architecture, or nature. Whether it’s fashion or interior design… a concept always needs to be applied to the design process.

When Yves Saint Laurent designed the revolutionary ‘Mondrian’ day dress as part of the Fall/ Winter collection in 1965-66, he was inspired by the Dutch painter Piet Mondrian.

Below you can see Grace Kelly wearing the geometric ‘Crusader’ dress from the collection.
Here 's a closer look

Also take a look at the Mondrian shelves... clever shelving designed by Axel Kufus. Beautiful.
