1960s Pierre Cardin Cerise Silk Dress and Cape

$870

About

Although the cape on this 1960s red and pink floral print evening dress by Pierre Cardin is too small to let you fly into the room, you can at least smoothly glide in, knowing all eyes are on you. The knee-length dress features a broad scoop neck with not-too-narrow spaghetti straps. The dress features a gathered waist, accenting the narrowest part of the lucky wearer’s torso. The dress is paired with a fantastic sheer cape with sleeves. The gorgeous cape is optional, but why would you want to be? Modern US Size: 4-6 Dress - Bust: 34 Waist: 25, Hip: 37 *Shipping includes signature required and insured full value

About the Manufacturer

Pierre Cardin

Best known for creating groundbreaking fashion designs from the 1950s onward, Pierre Cardin 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 on 1stDibs, Pierre Cardin offers an option in either that is timelessly chic.
