The world's most famous rabbit now also has an iconic design by Michael Barnaart in her wardrobe. Miffy wears the Mondrian dress as an enamel brooch.
"I also like those stripes / I think that's really good / I just don't know exactly / how I should look," Miffy once said. She is a lover of the work of Piet Mondrian. Just like Michael Barnaart, who in turn is a fan of Dick Bruna's most famous brainchild. With a Miffy brooch in his famous Mondrian dress, the fashion designer creates a logical but unique meeting between two of the most influential artists of the modern Dutch design tradition.
“Dick Bruna's work is one of my earliest childhood memories; Miffy hung above my bed as a poster,” says Barnaart. “The apparent simplicity, the strong lines and the striking colors are important sources of inspiration for my designs. Those same elements struck me later in Mondrian's work.” When his Mondrian dress conquered the world at international exhibitions in 2011, the designer Bruna wrote a letter thanking him for his inspiration. “His handwritten response still hangs in my boutique,” he beams. “Since then, a collaboration with Miffy has been high on my wish list.
