Spectacular Pierre Cardin psychedelic fantasy floral print silk organza maxi 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 and mind-bending clothing of the era. This kaleidoscopic garment is a perfect example of his more genuine. The construction of this dress 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 middle-split layered skirting which looks gorgeous with movement. A beautiful piece of wearable fashion history. "The clothing I prefer are those I invent for a life that doesn't yet exist- the world of tomorrow!" Pierre Cardin
