Shift dresses during the Mod era were great bases for showcasing prints. A far cry from fifties florals, geometrics, primary shapes and abstract art were used as inspiration.

Famously, Yves Saint Laurent applied Mondrian’s composition paintings to this simple shape. The designed allowed him to hide all of the seaming in the panels.

As you can see below, it’s still influential today.

On display at the Fashion & Textile museum, some pieces which took influence from this trend.

As I left the museum, I spotted these windows which resembled the Mondrian design.

And some tiling at the Underground station which I thought fit in with design. Once I find out about an art, fashion or design era, trend or piece, I start to subconsciously notice it everywhere.
