1967 Pierre Cardin Mauve-Pink Wool Mod Pockets Space-Age Metal Belt Mini Dress

About

Spectacular Pierre Cardin mauve-pink wool mod dress from his 1967 fall/winter 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 which made some of the most futuristic clothing of the era. This stunning garment is a perfect example of his genuine. The construction of this garment is amazing; the turtleneck bodice has stitched relief pattern which is lightly padded within, to create depth. The matching over-sized metal and vinyl statement belt is pure wearable art; adding a signature Cardin touch. I adore the tailored a-line silhouette which is so figure flattering. A beautiful piece of documented couture 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:36-37 inches Hips:up to 40 inches Sleeve Length:22 inches Total Length:35 inches This Pierre Cardin dress is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or discoloration. Perfectly working back-zipper. Fully-lined with original belt included. Only sign of wear are a few tiny holes to the wool which are not noticeable when worn. 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.
