Spectacular mid 1960's Pierre Cardin designer dress in a rich navy-blue tailored linen. 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 look most associated with Cardin is the "Space Age" collections of the 1960's 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 sculpted mod pockets work flawlessly with the white leather belt and buttons. I adore the a-line silhouette which is so figure flattering. A beautiful piece of wearable couture history. "The clothing I prefer are those I invent for a life that doesn't yet exist, the world of tomorrow!" Pierre Cardin
