Who told the talented duo at Ohne Titel of my weakness for dresses with a painterly provenance? Whoever it was, let me say, humbly, thank you. Thank you very much.

Exhibit A: this sleeveless draped silk dress with contrasting panels. It gives me the same variety of tickled excitement I experience when staring at a Mondrian or a Franz Kline, and that isn’t easy to come by. Not as easy as I’d like it to be, anyway.

This dress balances its bright IKB (that’s International Klein Blue for those of you who aren’t art freaks) base with its black and white geometric accents in such perfect ratios that one thing becomes immediately obvious: you and your stylish cronies (art freaks or not) will be moonstruck with a single glance.

Not exactly a surprise considering the design duo at Ohne Titel have also collaborated with one of my favorite artists, Tauba Auerbach, AND they happen to be up for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund award this year…
