For this week's inspiration post, I thought we would have a little fun and take a look back at Pierre Cardin. In the 1960's, he pushed the envelope, embraced his love for geometric designs, and produced pieces that reflected the changing times.
While we would not wear a number of the pieces, I think they do provide inspiration, a different look at shapes and what can be done.
In 2012, at the age of 90. Pierre Cardin was still working, still designing, and still embracing geometric shapes..
I was not able to embed the video, only the link, but it is well worth watching. It's about 6 minutes long and it's a look inside the atelier of Pierre Cardin and a wonderful interview as well. You'll be surprised with the impact that Pierre Cardin actually had on how we view fashion today.
The videos below are only a couple of minutes long, but a great look back. In the first video, there is a car wash type top that I absolutely love. In the second video, at the very end, you'll get a glimpse of a black and white piece with circular insets. Moves beautifully.
Hope you've had a little fun, maybe a smile at this look back.
Just think, the day will come when we look back at what we're wearing today and wonder what were we thinking!!!
