1965 Pierre Cardin Haute Couture Beaded Green Silk Caftan Gown
Spectacular 1965 Pierre Cardin haute couture designer silk chiffon gown in the prettiest emerald green color. 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 looks most associated with Cardin are the collections of the 1965-1970, which made some of the most futuristic clothing of the era. This stunning dress is a perfect example of his genius. The construction of this garment is amazing- the bodice is embroidered with metallic thread, beaded, sequined & studded with dramatic rhinestones. I adore the ethereal goddess caftan silhouette which is so figure flattering. This is couture on the highest level with everything about the piece done to work with the rest. A beautiful work of wearable designer history. "The clothing I prefer are those I invent for a life that doesn't yet exist, the world of tomorrow!" Pierre Cardin
