Sorry to have been absent so long, but my exam is finally over! Hurrah! And while I should have been paying attention to how "price parity power" is an innovation of the eighth round of the the Doha International Monetary Fund or bla bla bla, I was actually thinking about something very different.
This dress, in fact.
Allow me to preface the following rant with "I love Yves Saint Laurent, this dress and this brand". The following is by no means a judgement rant. More of a friendly theoretical rant.
Okay, phew, here we go.
The thing is, this dress makes absolutely no sense. The Mondrian concept was a statement of artwork pared down to its essential parts: colour (the primarys: red, blue, yellow) and lines (vertical and horizontal).
And since YSL's dress, Mondrian inspired pieces have popped up in the most unexpected places and to amazing effect:
Side note: I love these sneakers. And the car. And the dress, coat, bag, hat, flag, wheels, boxes.

Contender through strong use of lines (very Mondrian, don't you think?) and colour choice (oooooh so simple!). However, there is a problematically complex use of pattern in the bust/chest region.

Use of pure black makes colour extremely elementary. Also, classic shape. However, the dress is so simple and paired down that it borders on dull-as-dog-%$#@
I don't know, Kaylene, I just can't decide. What do you think of the matter?
