About

Spectacular Pierre Cardin mod dress in a vibrant ruby-red wool knit from his iconic 1969 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 construction of this garment is amazing- signature black applique work with matching block-color trim. I adore the dramatic color combination! The figure flattering a-line silhouette
glades down a woman's shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. A beautiful 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

Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
