S/S 1992 Black Geometric Lace Gown
Iconic and rare Pierre Cardin black velvet off-the-shoulder gown with large, structured geometric black lace ruffles. 3D flowers are tucked underneath the ruffles. An incredible, sculptural, wearable work of art. In very good vintage condition, with some marks to the velvet where a belt likely used to be (can be covered by a medium to large belt). Otherwise in spectacular condition, with very well preserved structure.
"Always imagining the look of the future, Cardin perfectly summarized his design ethos: 'The dresses I prefer are those I invent for a life that does not yet exist.'" - FIDM
