I love these -- especially the ones that are more than just a fabric print. Thanks for this!

Replying to myself to say that I deeply appreciate the visual, artistic, fashion pun that is that first column dress. It's also just a beautiful dress.

Why can't I see the connection on this one?

"Water Lilies" [New Yorker] was Céline Sciamma's first film, so it's nice to see an eponymous painting as inspiration for the dress most reminiscent of Sciamma's latest, Portrait of a Lady on Fire

I think the connection in the Chloe dress is very much the overall silhouette of the dress, but there might also be something in that detail that I can't see in the photo.

One should always dress like a marble column.

No. 22 is incredible

mittens, it looks like jaquilynne is correct, the connection is in the silhouette and muted colours and I think there's also something going on there with the strong woman vibes of the model.

Mondrian was also the inspiration for the La Vie Claire cycling team in the 80s.
