1967 Couture Pierre Cardin Silk Babydoll
A few years back there was a sale of some Pierre Cardin pieces done for Mia Farrow in 1967. This dress is from that same time period and shows many of the same elements. Those dresses, because of their celebrity association all went for about $20,000 a piece! I love this particular version - it really embodies the late 1960s with its baby doll, short skirted exterior and swingy cut. The bodice is cut high with a demure slightly scooped neck. From this a dramatic tightly pleated expanse of fabric swings out - there are literally yards of fabric in there all finished with tiny knife pleats. Each pleat is secured into place at the hem with a padded round finish. This gives the dress weights and adds a signature Cardin touch. The sleeves are cut to narrow at the shoulder and gradual widen to a soft billow at each cuff. A fitted under dress in silk gives the wearer the feeling of structure! An amazing piece of couture and fashion history! Truly a find and in excellent condition. Item# DD848
