From the bubble dress to experimental furniture, the all-rounder Pierre Cardin has asserted himself by bringing together fashion and design. While the Space Age aesthetic marked by the utopian aspirations of the sixties is resurfacing, his retro-futuristic universe resonates more than ever in collective memories. Its mantra? Creating clothes and furniture « for a life that does not yet exist, for the world of tomorrow ». A retrospective at the similarities of a genius.
As usual, Pierre Cardin has stepped out of the shackles of modernity by making green his favorite color, considered by the visionary to be both a soothing and invigorating hue, a symbol of nature and well-being.
« I like to draw in the absolute, without constraints of angles, corridors, rooms or walls. Making sleeves for dresses or legs for a table is the same thing. » The designer is always juggling between interior design and Haute Couture without making a difference.
« It’s stupid to place a piece of furniture against a wall, if my furniture is double-sided, you have to see it from all angles. From the front to the back« . Indeed, most of the pieces and furniture designed by Cardin are conceived to be displayed and admired at 360° like sculptures.
