Spectacular 1967 Pierre Cardin designer mod cocktail in the prettiest chartreuse 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- metallic silver embroidery along side jeweled beadwork in hues of green. I adore the unique side cut-out circles which is wonderful nod to mod fashion. The lean, long sleeves with a-line skirting is incredible flattering as well! This is vintage fashion 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
