Fashion Redux: Pierre Cardin Spring Summer 2011

Though the collection has a very Parisian feel to it, the looks are quite dated and not in sync. Too many references with a misplaced theme, namely, space age futuristic, which ends up looking retro. After a gap of 10 years, 88 year old designer/pioneer Pierre Cardin relaunched his label with his Spring 2011 line during the second day of Paris Fashion Week back in September. He may have lost his point of view, which ironically, was producing futuristic 'jetsons' theme designs way back in the 60s, it seems he's still stuck in that era. Yet one can't overlook the fact that some of the pieces in his current collection are interesting and show potential, all thanks to Lady Gaga wearing one of his metal can can dresses, which may in turn have spurred the demand for 'retro avante garde' costumes.
