A marvelous Pierre Cardin documented vinyl coated tweed mod trench jacket dating back to his beloved 1968 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 which made some of the most futuristic clothing of the era. This stunning and ultra rare zip-down trench jacket is a perfect example of his genuine. The fabric itself is fantastic; light brown wool tweed that has been coated with vinyl to protect against rain and snow. I love the chic banded collar and four bold front stitched relief pockets which are lightly padded within to create depth. The lean, long sleeves and a-line silhouette are both very 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
