1960s Pierre Cardin Couture Pleat Dress
An amazing couture Pierre Cardin is in such excellent condition it may as well have just stepped off its 1960s runway and into my hands! Constructed of a linen look mixed fabric it is an amazing soft pale peach color. The color alone makes this special and collectible! Its is cut architectural style as typical of the nest of the Cardin pieces are. The body of the dress is almost flapper-esque in style with little definition through the waist area - it falls in one smooth tube to that dropped skirt. Once you reach the skirted area it is full on cardin. A padded top stitched band with bog circles worked into the design encircle the lower hip. More amazing it that this is done over flat knife pleating which then flares out to create a low swingy skirt. It has so much movement and impact! Truly amazing and a work of art. Immaculate condition.
