Pierre Cardin Tweed Jacket and Skirt Ensemble Suit w/Detachable collar ca. 1982


A circa 1982 Pierre Cardin jacket and skirt suit with oversized detachable shawl collar in shades of maroon, light violet and navy blue wool tweed. The button down jacket features raglan sleeves, frontal gray metal snaps and an oversize detachable "shawl" collar that stands away from the neck and lays across the shoulder in a cape-like manner. The jacket has a defined natural waist that flares slightly in a peplum over the hips, and center front bow detail at the waist. The straight skirt is 3/4 length with small gathers on either side of the side seam. Both top and bottom lined in grey silk. A very similar suit is depicted in the coffee table book, "Pierre Cardin Fifty Years of Fashion and Design" on page 37 which is included in these images. In excellent condition with no size or fabric tag so please consult measurements. My guess is that the top fits a 4 or 6 and the bottom will fit a 2 or 4. Label: Pierre Cardin Paris. MEASUREMENTS: TOP - Shoulders: (approx. since they are raglan) - 17" Sleeves: (approx. since they are raglan) 20" Waist: 30" Length: 24" SKIRT - Waist: 26" Hips: 38" Length: 22"

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.
