He met the model Hiroko Matsumoto, who would come back to Paris with him and serve as his muse for much of the 1960s. Matsumoto was accomplished in her own right, becoming the first Japanese woman to model French couture, modeling for Vogue and becoming the face of Nina Ricci. Matsumoto also acted in Françoise Truffaut’s 1970 French New Wave film, Bed and Board, the fourth film in the Antoine Doinel series. Her film wardrobe was custom designed by Hanae Mori. In her later years, Matsumoto worked as a fashion editor. 2. Struck a deal with the Takashimaya luxury department store and became the first western designer and brand to design and manufacture collection for the Japanese market. This Cardin-Takashimaya collaboration is proof of Cardin’s 1960s integration into the worldwide sphere of fashion, as well as his hand in the introduction of Hiroko Matsumoto to the French runways (jumpstarting her international career), making him an early adopter and champion of the current international fashion environment. *All garments and accessories have been professionally cleaned and thoroughly checked before shipping.

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.
