A Pierre Cardin (attributed to) Couture Ball Gown In Tribute to Paul Poiret


Circa 1968/1970 Paris France A tubular tulle dress with hoop and turquoise blue lace embroidered with iridescent blue sequins and translucent tubular sequins. Large blue-sky and silver lurex daisies appliqué. Three-quarter straight sleeves and curved low-cut neckline. Turquoise silk taffeta lining. No label on it but for sure Pierre Cardin gown. Excellent condition of color and conservation. The futuristic target or hoops dresses of the late 1960s have made the reputation of the couturier. He was the first to mix silver lurex synthetic materials with powerful primary colors. With this Pierre Cardin dress, in a nod to Paul Poiret, his art of the circle is declined in a tribute to the famous dress of the couturier called "Sorbet" or "Minaret" and dating from 1912. Dimensions: Equivalent French Size 38 Front height 122 cm Back height 122 cm Shoulders 34 cm Collar 9 cm Sleeves 41 cm Chest 84 cm Waist 75 cm Hips 89 cm

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.
