1972 Pierre Cardin Graphic Block-Color Mink Fur & Leather Grommet Princess Coat

About

Exquisite Pierre Cardin designer genuine mink-fur and leather coat dating back to his 1972 Fall/Winter collection. The luxurious blonde and chocolate brown mink has been worked into an almost deco-square checkered pattern and the effect is really breathtaking. The care to piece this together after carefully selecting matching hues must have taken weeks. The gorgeous bodice has a dramatic over-sized portrait collar and lean, long sleeves. I adore the leather cummerbund waist with lace-up grommet detail. The hourglass waist flows into a princess swing silhouette which looks gorgeous when you move. The mark of a truly fashionable garment is that it remains stylish and timeless 40 years later, as does this sumptuous chic garment! Measurements Bust:37-38 inches Waist:32 inches Hips:up to 48 inches Sleeve Length:24 inches Total Length:46 inches This Pierre Cardin designer mink and leather princess coat is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Fully-lined and complete with hidden side-pockets. A stunning wearable investment piece that will continue to increase in value.

About Pierre Cardin (Manufacturer)

Best known for creating groundbreaking fashion designs from the 1950s onward, Pierre Cardin has enjoyed great success in other design fields, most notably furniture. Cardin’s chairs, cabinets, tables and other pieces share many of the keynotes of his clothing designs. They are simple, geometric, elegant and cool.


     Cardin was born in a village near Venice, Italy, and raised in central France. Always interested in fashion, he left home at age 17 to train with a Vichy tailor. After the end of World War II, Cardin moved to Paris and worked for a succession of couture houses, before taking a job with Christian Dior in 1946. Cardin went solo in 1950, and quickly won attention for his novel style. Unlike Dior’s famous New Look, Cardin’s clothes de-emphasized a woman’s curves; his breakthrough pieces like the Bubble dress had, instead, a sculptural quality. In the following decade, Cardin introduced bright tunic dresses and shifts, marketed as the Space Age look and accessorized with vinyl hats and visors.


     In the 1970s Cardin expanded his design work into furniture, jewelry and automobiles. (Later, licensing agreements would put Cardin’s name on goods ranging from perfume to sunglasses.) Cardin’s furniture pieces — inspired, perhaps, by the rediscovery of Art Deco design in that decade — feature simple, symmetrical forms, lacquer and figured veneer finishes, and accents in metals such as aluminum and brass. Whether you are looking for a vintage cocktail dress or a chest of drawers to keep it in, as you will see from these pages, Pierre Cardin offers an option in either that is timelessly chic.
