1974 Pierre Cardin Haute Couture Green Silk One-Shoulder Goddess Gown
An ultra chic and highly collectable Pierre Cardin haute couture apple green silk goddess gown dating back to his spring-summer 1974 collection. 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. Cardin is known for his avant-garde style and his unique geometric shapes, often ignoring the female form. This incredibly rare sculptural look is a perfect example of his genius. The construction of this garment is amazing- yards of luxurious double layered heavy weight silk with an impressive draped billow hemline. I love the asymmetric one-shoulder bodice which was very popular during this period. The beaded appliqué adds the perfect amount of sparkle and texture. This dress is vintage fashion on the highest level; a well thought out idea in a stunning color and effortless silhouette. A beautiful example of haute couture history that looks like it just walked off the Paris runway.
