Of course the second I saw this dress, I wanted it. And of course, they only made 10 of them and they are all destined for museums…sigh! So it is with art…
The dress I am referring to is a collaboration between Ellsworth Kelly, who just turned 90, and Francisco Costa of Calvin Klein.
The dress pictured above is based off of a 1952 sheath that Kelly designed with leftover fabric from a rare piece where he used colored fabric instead of paint.
Its incredible how modern the idea is today…just imagine how radical it must have seemed in 1952!
Dree Hemingway wore the dress at Kelly’s studio in upstate NY in front of one his ‘Black Relief over White II’…exquisite. Now if I could only snag one of these gorgeous dresses to go with my custom black and white Ferragamos….
