Vintage 1965 Pierre Cardin Haute Couture Beaded Green Silk Chiffon Caftan Gown

$2,500

About

Spectacular 1965 Pierre Cardin haute couture designer silk chiffon gown in the prettiest emerald green color. 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 looks most associated with Cardin are the collections of the 1965-1970, which made some of the most futuristic clothing of the era. This stunning dress is a perfect example of his genuine. The construction of this garment is amazing- the bodice is embroidered with metallic thread, beaded, sequined & studded with dramatic rhinestones. I adore the ethereal goddess caftan silhouette which is so figure flattering. This is couture on the highest level with everything about the piece done to work with the rest. A beautiful work of wearable designer 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 Waist: 32 inches Hips: 40 inches Total Length: 56 inches This Pierre Cardin haute couture garment is in very good condition with no stains, discoloration or fade. A few missing beads and some minor pulls to the silk. Please message for detailed pictures. Perfectly working hand set back-zipper.

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.
