Mad for Mondrian on Spy Vibe. Piet Mondrian (1872-1944), is celebrated for his post-1920 theories regarding pure color, flat forms, and dynamic tension. His work inspired fashion by Yves Saint Laurent and pop minimalism in the 1960s. His legacy continues as new designers pay homage to his ideas. Below are some fab examples of geometric color designs pre and post Mondrian: ad for david Peyser fashion, maquette of Schroder House by Gerrit Rietvelt, Mondrain dresses by Yves Saint Laurent, Mondrian's Composition II w red and blue, Simplicity patterns, Flint movie design, White Stripes album cover.

Get ready to meet MIKI ZERO, Japanese fashion model and spy! The creator of Spy Vibe has written a novel called Elevator Girl, inspired by his love of Ian Fleming and based on newly declassified intel from the Cold War. More info at Whiton's website here.
