About

Here's an incredible space age coat from Pierre Cardin from the 1960s. Made from black vinyl, it features a mod silhouette with flared hem, a chunky zip front with brass circle pull and mod stitching that circles the pockets and forms a "faux" belt around the back. Fully lined in vibrant red wool, this is a substantial and well-made piece. In very good condition for its 50+ years of age, we note that its missing its original closure and logo button at the collar (please see image 8), and there's some wrinkles to the vinyl from prior wear (image 8). No size tag, but we're estimating this as a modern size S/M, based on these measurements: shoulders - 16.25in bust - 36in, waist - 27in, hips - 39in, length - 35in, sleeves - 22in.

About Pierre Cardin

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.
