1960s Chic Sculpted Pierre Cardin Dress

About

Made of his signature, fine wool jersey, this little black dress is delicious! It has all his classic elements - a sculpted A-line cut, seaming that further defines the cut and large buttons to highlight that seaming. The sleeves and hem are also finished in a flat braided applique. I love the neckline in particular - it appears that it all buttons into place but this is all decorative and just clever seaming and placement of the buttons. The skirt has a rounded pleat set just below the waist on either side of the hip at the front - this adds to the shape of the skirt and also adds yet another element. Pictures do not do it justice, Cardin piece are best appreciate when in hand or worn - they have a magical and sculptural fee and are cut at a masterful level! Excellent, museum quality condition.
