I must disagree. MOMA would have better aesthetics. This is like a parody of William Steig printed on a ceramic ashtray.

MOMA does have some vestments, or at least some designs for some. The French artist Henri Matisse designed the vestments for the tres moderniste pilgrimage chapel of Notre Dame du Haut in Ronchamp. He made some maquettes out of paper to serve as models for the nuns to copy when they were making the vestments.

Here's a sample of one of the chasubles.

Haha, this is from Slabbinck. It's part of their "master collection".

"Now, Johnny, what have I told you about trying out you new Sharpie on the priest's vestments?!"
