A Haute Couture Evening Dress in Two-tone Jersey by Pierre Cardin Circa 1975/1985
Astonishing evening Peplum dress in silk jersey playing with the bichromy of Yin and Yang, and signed by Pierre Cardin Prestige dating from the early 1980s. Funny nod to Yves Mathieu Saint Laurent at Dior in 1955 in the more famous fashion photography (Dovima aux éléphants, Richard Avedon, Cirque d'Hiver, Paris 1955). Straight cut with a long dress slit sideways on the skirt and at the sleeve, playing on the asymmetry in cream and black silk jersey. On the right shoulder, a large theatrical braid, using cardboard in lining. Side zip at the back. White and black label indicating Pure silk, Size 38, Pierre Cardin Prestige, Made in France. Note very light marks of iron on the black jersey (very little visible), otherwise very good condition of color and conservation.
