Homage to Pop Art

In 1965, Yves Saint Laurent introduced art into fashion with his Mondrian series. He continued paying tribute to art in his Autumn-Winter 1966 collection by looking to the Pop Art movement across the Atlantic. In addition to a series of extremely colorful dresses inspired by this art form, he also designed two dresses paying homage to Tom Wesselmann with a cutout effect inspired by the artist’s aesthetic and its play on the codes of consumer society.
