Remixed Dress, Polo vs. YSL
Charlotte Gaspard [aka MissCSpot], Sonali Sridhar & Carolina Pino
The Remixed dress takes de design code of Yves Saint Laurent and Remixes it with the Polo Shirt Design Code. YSL is known for its use of ruffles, gathered fabric and its traditional color scheme, black, white and bright colors like pink, which represents his trademark flower, the pink rose. On the other hand the polo shirt is know for its traditional collar, knitted fabric, logo and tennis tail. This creation re-approriates all these codes maintaining the original part spirit of both identities hacked but allowing a new aesthetic to emerge in the design, acknowledging the original inspiration and the genealogy behind this design.
