An Arm and A Leg

YSL and Jean Charles de CastelbajacA year after Yves Saint Laurent debuted his Mondrian-inspired shift dresses, the designer continued his appropriation of art into fashion with his Fall/Winter 1966-67 “Pop Art” dresses. This crop of dresses featured fragmented silhouettes of the female figure printed atop columnar shaped gowns, perhaps suggesting the nude body beneath the cloth. For┬áJean Charles de Castelbajac’s SS 2014 show, the designer would feature a dress with an uncanny resemblance to YSL’s 1966 version.
