Style Translation: Sam Francis's "Composition: Yellow and Red"

In our May issue, we hipped you to the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art's mid-century modernism exhibit, which runs now through August 27. In particular, we profiled a 1956 water color and goauche piece ("Composition: Yellow and Red") by Sam Francis, who was experimenting with new uses of color in resolution of an exceedingly monochromatic phase.  Also in the May issue, we offered a style translation of Francis's painting which, if I do say so myself, articulated a marriage of art and fashion particularly well.

But last week, I stopped dead in my tracks when I spotted this top at chezElle. It, in one piece, mirros the work perfectly–almost as though it were made with this very painting in mind.
