Rare Pierre Cardin Space Age Vinyl Cape Espresso Brown Faux Fur Lining 60s M

$1,400Asking Price


This incredible space age cape was made by Pierre Cardin in the 1960s. Made from an unusual espresso brown vinyl, it fastens with a chunky brass zipper and pull ring and is fully lined in spotted faux fur. Each outer pocket features mod quilted stitching! In very good condition for its 50+ years of age, we note appx 2in of loose stitching to the lining under one arm slit and each arm slit shows one tiny (less than a 1/32 of an inch) tear at the seam. Tagged Pierre Cardin, we estimate this piece as a modern size medium. It measures 42in from collar to hem and 17in across the shoulders. No size or content label.

About Pierre Cardin (Designer)

Best known for creating groundbreaking fashion designs from the 1950s onward, Pierre Cardin 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 on 1stDibs, Pierre Cardin offers an option in either that is timelessly chic.
