1966 Pierre Cardin Paris Pink & White Textured Cotton Space-Age Mod Mini Dress

About

Magnificent Pierre Cardin mod dress in an elegant pink and white color combination from his iconic 1966 documented collection. In 1951 Cardin opened his own couture house and by 1957, he started a ready-to-wear line; a bold move for a French couturier at the time. The look most associated with Cardin is the “Space Age” collections of the 1960's and early 1970's which made some of the most futuristic clothing of the era. This stunning modernist dress is a perfect example of his genuine. The fabric used for this garment is amazing- signature relief textured graphic pattern in a gorgeous cotton linen. I adore the dramatic block-color trim which frames the dress beautifully! The figure flattering a-line silhouette glades down a woman's shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. A wonderful piece of wearable designer history. "The clothing I prefer are those I invent for a life that doesn’t yet exist– the world of tomorrow." Pierre Cardin Measurements Bust:32 inches Hips:36 inches Total Length:32 inches This Pierre Cardin Paris dress is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or discoloration. Lovely textured quilted cotton fabric. Perfectly working back metal zipper. Highly wearable and an 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.
