The exhibition, Pierre Cardin: 70 Years of Innovation, will open in the second floor exhibition gallery at Rosecliff on May 27, featuring 42 original pieces from Mr. Cardin's private archives that document and celebrate his prolific career from the 1950s through his 2016 spring/summer collection.
Included will be some of his most memorable designs, including 1960s space-age looks from the Cosmocorps collection, unisex jumpsuits created for the 1972 Olympics, and the technologically advanced Cardine dress, made of thermo-formed fabric, that was worn by Lauren Bacall in 1968.
In addition to fashion, Mr. Cardin’s interests have extended to art, architecture and furniture design. Some pieces from his extensive collection of art by French Belle Époque caricaturist Georges Goursat, also known as SEM, will also be included in the exhibition. Complementing the artwork will be a vignette from Maxim’s, the storied Parisian restaurant that Mr. Cardin has owned since 1981.
The exhibition will be on view through January 1, 2018, and is included in regular Rosecliff tour admission.
