Paris Fashion Week Preview
Pierre Cardin's Comeback
Paris Fashion Week kicked off on Wednesday with a big comeback: Pierre Cardin, famous for his futuristic fashion in the 1960s, returned to the runway after 10 years at his old Espace Cardin auditorium. And he came back with a bang, introducing a Spring/Summer 2011 collection of his-and-hers blue raincoats, white lace evening dresses and pod-like bags. The collection seemed to draw on his '60s Space-Age aesthetic but also felt modernized the 21st century. Several wide-hipped dresses seemed like the stuff of fairy tales. Cardin designed clothes for The Beatles and The Rolling Stones back in the day, but now Lady Gaga, who is reportedly a fan, is likely taking note.
