Pierre Cardin celebrates his 90th

French fashion designer Pierre Cardin appears at the end of his Men’s Spring-Summer 2013 collection, for the Paris Fashion Week, in Paris, France, PARIS (AFP) – The first couturier to put men on the Paris catwalks back in 1958, style veteran Pierre Cardin earned fond applause, if not critical acclaim, Sunday at a comeback show on the eve of his 90th birthday. Pierre Cardin is the last active survivor of the great postwar French fashion houses, the Italian-born Cardin is today owner of a sprawling luxury empire, but his catwalk shows are few and far between, his last in Paris a women’s line in 2010. Faithful to the space-age theme Pierre Cardin has mined on and off since the 1960s, his men’s look featured broad-shouldered, sleeveless tunics in navy felt, wool tartan or diving suit neoprene with futuristic visor shades. Pierre Cardin jackets had vertical slashed panels at the back, or were adorned with twists of black rubber tubing, like a prickly hedgehog across the shoulders.TO READ THE FULL STORY Go to….
