c1967 Pierre Cardin Demi-Couture Cut Out Neckline Dress

About

I believe this to be from the 1967 "Cosmocorps" collection but the main line not the ready to wear line. You can see the very similar design treatment at the front with that incredible scooped out detail in the photos from that year provided. The best Cardin designs have this molded sculptural element to them and this one has that in spades. The dress is constructed from an inky black wool of a mid-weight that holds the sculpted shape perfectly. It is cut in a sleek little A-line with a fabulous mod feel. The dress is meant to define the shape rather then the body under it. At the neck there is a contrasting panel in blue that has one of his signature curved cut outs. This gives the dress a graphic pop and is quite fabulous. This same blue is used at each cuff. This is Cardin at his best and is an instantly recognizable design. It is very rare and very special. Excellent condition with two small notes Fully lined in a black silk and closes with a back zipper and hook & eye at the back neck. Each cuff closes with a black fabric covered button. There is a teeny thinning of the fabric at the neck that is barely noticeable and there are two nips out of the fabric near the seam at one side. See the reference photos for both areas. These have been there since I acquired it and the dress has been specialty cleaned. They came through with no problems and are strong and stable. Sleeves: 25.5" Shoulders: 16.5" Bust: 19" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: 18" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: 20.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Length: 36.5" from neck to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: MED-LRG Reference Photo: Pierre Cardin Collection 1967. Photo by Giancarlo Botti. This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free. Thoroughly checked over before shipping, it will be ready to wear upon arrival.

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.
