Marvelous 1968 Pierre Cardin designer jacket in a rich fully-lined white cotton twill. 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 trench is a perfect example of his genuine. The construction of this garment is amazing- the iconic c-shaped cutwork really showcases the side pockets. The back pleat design and mod shoulder epaulettes add signature Cardin touches! 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
