1970s Pierre Cardin Mod Graphic Jersey Wool Day Dress

About

A Pierre Cardin sleeveless wool jersey dress in creme and brown with graphic print design. I'm such a fan of this hip and sophisticated mod day dress with its flared skirt and modern decorative elements: a square inside a square appliquéd at the hip and small rectangular metal plate attachment with oversize silver metal ring at the front bottom hem. Fully lined, zips up center back. No size tag but my guess is it will fit a 4 or 6. Labeled: Jersey Couture Designed by Pierre Cardin Paris London. MEASUREMENTS: Shoulders: 13.5" Bust: 32" Waist: 29" Hips - 36" Bodice Length - 15" Skirt Length - 23"

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.
