1969 Documented Pierre Cardin Runway & Ad Campaign Dress

An amazing and well documented Pierre Cardin dress from the 1968 collection. In the photos I have oncluded you can see the same dress in the light grey version from the photo taken at the runway show that year. I have also included the ad run in L'Officiel Magazine that year clearly showing the same dress in grey there as well. This gorgeous little mod shift is constructed of the prettiest green fabric with white accents at the collar and cuffs. His signature white appliques are added tot he front skirt making it instantly recognizable as a Cardin! The color alone makes this special and collectible and I personally love the green - it is so pretty and chic. The dress itself has that simple architectural cut as typical of Cardin pieces. The A-line shape flares out prettily from the shoulders with the waist left undefined. Truly amazing and a work of highly collectible art. Excellent, museum quality condition.

Fully lined in a green silk and closes at the back with a painted metal zipper. Note that there is no change in color - any effect you see is lighting from the camera only.
