You may remember Pierre Cardin as a man whose certain creations were impossible to wear or extremely expensive. But, you also cannot deny the fact that he gave young men, their identity in the 1950s when men used to wear baggy suits with bulky collars, tails, cuffs, and tapered trousers and used to look aged. At that time, he created a revolutionary look for the young generation and brought the fashion of stiff white shirts and boxy jackets. The radical tailoring of the clothes helped the young men differentiate themselves from the older generation.
Pierre Cardin did not just stop there. His imagination took him too far than any one of us can even think of. His futuristic imagination helped him try his hands in different areas including ladies’ couture, perfume, furniture, etc. Soon after that, his name was visible on almost every item in the market like watches and ballpoint pen. He was a terrific businessman whose parents wanted him to become an architect when he was young but destiny had something exceptional for him. In one of his interviews with a renowned media house, he had once said, “The clothes that I prefer are those I invent for a life that doesn’t exist yet – the world of tomorrow.”
We salute this extraordinary man for his unprecedented journey and pray for the peace of his soul.
