Pre-Fall 2012

Not to depart from graphic design, but has some really beautiful pieces in the Pre-Fall 2012 collections that caught my eye. I will explain why I am making you look at fashion: 1) patterns 2) composition of the photographs 3) textures 4) colors 5) movements in art and style bridge fields and influence each other (see last images of Warhol, Yves Saint Laurent, and Mondrian).

Then the part I explained to you: Below are the portraits of Yves Saint Laurent by Andy Warhol, and the De Stijl Dress of Yves Saint Laurent’s Mondrian Color Block Shift, and Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Shift, all from the late sixties, all borrowing from each other, all expressing an art movement in a different way.

    Mondrian Shift… dislike. We had to make a big Flash website designed in that style in college.

      Oh come on Stammy! De Stijl and Constructivism still look modern and they are at least 50 year old movements! You gotta give em some credit!
