Spectacular Pierre Cardin psychedelic naked-ladies print silk organza dress from his 1969 spring-summer 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 garment is a perfect example of his genuine. The construction of this garment is amazing; the scoopneck bodice has stitched relief pleating to create depth. The sleeves have a beautiful bell-sleeve effect; adding a signature Cardin touch. I adore the flowing a-line swing silhouette which is so figure flattering. A beautiful piece of wearable novelty couture history. "The clothing I prefer are those I invent for a life that doesn't yet exist- the world of tomorrow!" Pierre Cardin
