Confession: We are smitten with the Forever 21 dress at right, inspired by two things at once: The first, of course, is the famous Composition series by Dutch artist Piet Mondrian. The second is a YSL sheath dress from 1965, currently housed in the Met Museum's archives. "But it's a copy!" you say, and we're like, yeah, we know, but it's a copy 43 years in the making, or 80-something years, since Mondrian began painting his most famous series in 1922. (We still don't plan on actually purchasing it.) Is it wrong to hope next, Forever 21 makes a sheath with giant soup cans all over it? (Yes, yes, we know, very wrong...)
