Breathtaking Pierre Cardin Paris designer cape in a unique mauve-pink and gray color combination. 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 late 1960's and early 1970'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 piece is amazing- the graphic optical art button closures are cut with a three dimensional illusion. The bold block coloring and pocket flap arm-holes add signature Cardin touches! I adore the easy-to-wear free size silhouette which is so versatile. 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
