Magnificent Pierre Cardin mod dress in a unique ivory, pink and purple color combination from his iconic 1966 documented collection. 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 and early 1970's which made some of the most futuristic clothing of the era. This stunning sleeveless modernist dress is a perfect example of his genuine. The construction of this garment is amazing- signature relief applique work done seamlessly. I adore the dramatic op-art abstract design! The figure flattering a-line silhouette with front slit glades down a woman's shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. A beautiful piece 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
