This dress is from the master of whimsical minimalism Pierre Cardin. This dress is from the early 1980s,the middle of his career. Monsieur Cardin was one of the first designers to experiment with wider shoulders in the late 1970s and here he has done so masterfully. The wearer gets the figure slimming shape of a wider shoulder only without plus size Dynasty shoulder pads. The line of the shoulders sharply contours the body, nipping the waist and balancing out the hips into two great pockets. The proportions on this dress are truly sculptural without being too avant garde. A great wearable dress from one of the past century's most forward thinking designers.
Designer: PIERRE CARDIN.
