About the Item

Fashion is an expression of time that is always marking its era. Pierre Cardin personifies the forward-thinking 1960s with his preoccupation with science fiction, futurism and technology. Equally, the youth movement of the 1960s was ingrained in all of Cardin’s collections of that time. The designer’s aesthetic was motivated by an almost obsessive desire to make a clean sweep of the past. His fashion felt new, contemporary, up-to-date. And today many of his designs occupy an important place in fashion history. The geometric shapes displayed on this colour-block dress clearly show the graphic and futuristic influences that guided Pierre Cardin’s fashion design. The block colours speak of innovations and the synthetic capabilities of colour production that was never seen before that period. And the fashionable value of the orange, white and brown is found primarily in our emotional responses to these colours. Here the colours are original, invigorating and full of life. Although appearing simple, the dress demonstrates confident and skillful garment construction and techniques such as the clean, crisp seams that connect the different palettes creating its geometric shape. Indeed, the orderly seams work against the fabric’s synthetic properties to create an illusion of shape achieved by juxtaposition of colours. The bi-colour details on the round neckline calls full attention to the designer’s dexterity and precision.
