70 years "LIVE SCULPTURES" of Pierre Cardin in Palais de l'Institute de France


Pierre Cardin celebrated 70 years in fashion with a show for the ages at the Institut de France.
“This is the biggest honor of my career,” Pierre Cardin says about his latest fashion show.



Pierre Cardin presented 30 November in the large hall of the Academy of Fine Arts which made it one of his own in 1991, a show of about 150 models, Reviewing 70 years of creation and "living sculptures".



Cut to a tailor for men, Pierre Cardin in 1946 collaborated with Christian Dior, before creating his own couture house. He presented his first fashion show in 1953. The success of his bubble dresses, totally futuristic, allowed him to open his first boutiques before launching a true pioneer of the licenses of his label in 140 countries.



"Immigrated two years from Veneto with your parents who were ruined by the First World War, you have succeeded in becoming one of the most famous French people in the world!" Said Erik Desmazières, president of the Academy, in a tribute to academicians and 200 guests, including stylist Azzedine Alaia.
"This is an exceptional day for me, the first time that a fashion designer presents his work at the Academy of Fine Arts, so far only painters, architects ... . "Pierre Cardin, the only independent French designer who owns 100% of his brand.



"For the first time in 70 years of fashion, I have not slept the night. I have never had such a fright before a parade," he added, obviously very moved. "Since my academic peers welcomed me in 1991, I feel an immense honor, and I have never known any bigger ones." The Academy of Fine Arts has encouraged me to say and do.



For this career anniversary, Pierre Cardin has selected his most emblematic creations, including his famous "Pleasure Sun" red wool coat from 1952, which created his reputation in the United States, as well as his men's collared jackets Beatles have adopted.



Cocktail dresses "floating silhouettes" in jersey or lamé, decorated with hoops or geometric inserts or martingales of leather, "Cosmocorps" outfits in wool of 1967, others with kinetic effects invented two years later, dresses Thermo-formed "Cardines" from 1971, Pagode sleeve dresses, inspired by the designer's many Asian journeys, men's trousers held by wide straps to wear shirtless, were at the heart of this retrospective.



According to tradition, a bride in a silver-laced dress under a long veil of white silk closed the step.
Unesco's goodwill ambassador, Pierre Cardin came to greet in academic uniform.

"The raison of my life is fashion," said Pierre Cardin, the precursor of ready-to-wear. "I was a child of the Faubourgs, I became Pierre Cardin! When I was young, long before I was famous, a fortune teller told me that my name would float all over the world."
