Pierre Cardin was known for his very, well, let's say thorough fashion shows. They were very long. In fact, they were so long one journalist said after a show, "I loved the first three hundred!". At RARE we like to edit from that three hundred, not every design is brilliant and not every look is necessarily a good one. Particularly with suits.
I love suits but I don't love them all equally. I don't love every Pierre Cardin suit but, of course, for our clients, I have found some amazing and iconic Pierre Cardin pieces. I love this late 1970s suit. It is all in the details. Futuristic scalloping with circular leather detail. The jacket is cut close to the body and the skirt has a small seamed pleat that lines up with the jacket. There is a small slit in the skirt in the front. It is sophisticated but young at the same time.
