Mondrian-Inspired Fashions: Yves Saint Laurent and Forever 21

This is the "original" Mondrian-inspired dress, which was done by Yves Saint Laurent in the autumn of 1965 (collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC).

This is the version that is sold at "Forever 21" -- clearly a knock-off!

This information was taken from the article "Forget the Walls: Putting Art Right on Your Clothes" (USA Today, 11/2/09), which was sent to me by Gareth Brown.
