For a short period in 1945, Cardin worked for the House of Schiaparelli and House of Paquin before joining Christian Dior, where he is credited with contributing toward the development of the New Look in 1947. In 1950, he embarked on his own line and quickly became a rising new star of Parisian couture. This ensemble illustrates Cardin's design aesthetic of impeccably tailored clothing composed of sculptural shapes with signature details. The gathered, blouson-back of the jacket is re-interpreted in the geometric pleated Computers collection coats of the 1980s.

Cardin's first atelier was originally located on Rue Richepanse (renamed Rue du Chevalier de Saint-George), and moved to the famed Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, where the designer launched his first couture collection in 1953. The next year, Cardin opened a boutique called Eve, followed by Adam for men in 1957. The black button detailing and sculptural neckline of this ivory wool bouclé coat dress anticipate the geometry and circle motifs found in Cardin's looks from the 1960s.

Travel has always been a source of design inspiration, and after seeing Nehru jackets in India, Cardin adapted their hip-length, collarless form into his men's fashions of the 1960s. The jacket design subtracted collars, cuffs and lapels, creating an iconic look that the designer adapted in grey wool piped in black for the Beatles in 1963. Cardin's innovations for men’s traditional suiting introduced neck scarves instead of ties, and turtlenecks in the place of button-down shirts.

Cardin traveled to Japan for the first time in 1957, where he was made an honorary professor at the Bunka Fukoso design college and taught three-dimensional pattern cutting classes. During his visits to Japan, he became acquainted with model Hiroko Matsumoto, who became his muse and followed him to Paris in 1962. While diversity is now more customary in fashion magazines and on the runway, this was not the case in the 1960s. Matsumoto became internationally famous as the first Japanese top model and was featured in the fashion press of the day. The signature image for "Pierre Cardin: Pursuit of the Future" presents Matsumoto in this look in from a 1966 fashion pictorial.

While the actual Space Age originated with the launch into space of Sputnik in 1957, the fashion space age developed on the Parisian catwalks in the early 1960s with Pierre Cardin and André Courrèges. The idea of exploration defined the era, and Cardin responded by pushing the boundaries of materials and silhouettes.

This look shows the evolution of Cardin's futuristic style for men during the 1960s. The jacket and trousers on look No. 3 have become integrated into a jumpsuit with asymmetrical zipper, leather detail at collar and arms, and the addition of a codpiece. The styling of Cardin's jumpsuit and wide neck takes cues from space suits worn by American astronauts and Soviet cosmonauts of the period.

This look is an example of the mod look that originated in London's swinging '60s style scene, which quickly became all the rage in the U.S. and around the world as young people adopted the look. The mod (modern) look features a minimalist aesthetic with clean lines, geometric shapes and bold color.

The landmark Cosmocorps collection incorporated minimalist dressing for both men and women. The collection stylistically resembles the futuristic costume designs found in television and films of the period such as "Star Trek" and "2001: A Space Odyssey." The unisex garments are accessorized with vinyl belts and helmet-inspired felt hats. Experimental use of materials like vinyl and synthetic fabric were combined with traditional fashion materials like wool and metal for this collection.

This kinetic mini dress features 128 individually printed images of Cardin's signature circle (here in bright green) held together by monofilament and vinyl straps at the shoulders with green sunburst button detailing on front and back. The lenticular effect creates the illusion of depth and ability to change as the dress moves with the wearer. This look was inspired by op art movement of the 1960s that explored the effects of color, line and pattern on the eye.

The iconic Carwash dress is one of the most coveted and hard to find pieces by Cardin. With an empire waist and heavy-weight fringed tendrils secured at the hemline, the garment harkens back to the flirty flapper dresses of the 1920s. The fringed panels create a swaying effect as the wearer moves in this mini dress.

Cardin was fascinated with space exploration. He visited NASA in 1971 and was the first civilian to put on the very spacesuit worn by American astronaut Buzz Aldrin during the Apollo 11 moon landing in 1969. This ensemble exemplifies Cardin's space-age style, complete with a bright red wool bodystocking, fringed skirt with signature circle at the ends and matching design for the vinyl necklace. For the final touch, a Plexiglas bubble headpiece resembling an astronaut's helmet is added for maximum futuristic effect.

In 1966, Cardin produced a couture collection of simple shift dresses patterned with targets, squares, diamonds and circles in bold colors. The central black wool diamond is pieced within a larger yellow diamond that stretches the length of the dress from collar to hem.

From his collection of simple shift dresses, the Target dress became an icon of its time and mirrors the visual and aesthetic of an op art painting. This design pieces a black wool circle off-center at the waistline, which is encircled within two larger areas of orange and red in the ivory body. This dress was featured in all leading fashion magazines of the time.

This cocktail dress was owned by the Mexican actress and singer, María Félix (1914-2002). Félix is considered one of the most important female figures of the Golden Era of Mexican Cinema. Her film career spanned more than three decades and included 47 films made in Mexico, Spain, France and Argentina. In fashion, Félix was dressed by the most prominent designers of the time, including Christian Dior, Givenchy, Chanel and Cardin, and was an ardent collector of antiques and jewelry.

The designer marketed his own fabric, Cardine, beginning in 1966. The fabric is a variant of Dynel fiber and may be heat-pressed into precise geometric shapes. Instead of piecing fabric or using appliques to create the geometric motifs in his garments, Cardine allowed the forms to be pressed directly into the fabric.

The designer marketed his own fabric, Cardine, beginning in 1966. The fabric is a variant of Dynel fiber and may be heat-pressed into precise geometric shapes. The stiff fabric ensures that the form suspends from the shoulders rather than draping over the body. Actress Lauren Bacall was a Cardin devotee, and the styling of this look is based on a vintage photograph of her in this ochre dress.

The silhouettes of this collection pay homage to the designer's archive and introduce an innovative use of neoprene. Neoprene is a synthetic rubber that is flexible, durable and water-resistant, and best known for its application in scuba suits. Cardin has used Neoprene in both men's and women's designs, including tunics, dresses and shoes. This collection debuted in September 2016 at the Yellow River Stone Forest National Geological Park, Baiyin, China. The unique patterns of the limestone mountain 'forest' provided a dramatic backdrop for runway show and marked 38 years since Cardin's first collection launched in China.

In addition to his contributions to fashion, Cardin is a design innovator whose pursuits extend to accessories, costume design, jewelry, product design, fragrances, furniture, theatrical production and more. In the early 1960s, he began branding his clothing and accessories with his company's logo. This trend was picked up by many other designers from the 1970s onward. Cardin's logos, consisting of his initials or a circular bull's eye, were often three-dimensional vinyl appliqués or quilted directly into the garment.

Pierre Cardin

SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion + Film is honored to feature the designs of the legendary fashion futurist Pierre Cardin in “Pierre Cardin: Pursuit of the Future,” a major retrospective exhibition. A revolutionary force in the fashion industry for seven decades, the indomitable 95-year-old designer continues at the helm of his creative enterprises and has earned numerous accolades for his contributions to fashion and humanitarian causes. In 2008, Cardin was honored with the SCAD Étoile for his contributions to the fields of fashion and design as well as his role in the historic restoration and cultural life of the medieval village of Lacoste, site of the university’s study-abroad location in France.

Best known for his 1960s space-age style, Cardin has pushed the boundaries of fashion by exploring new materials and silhouettes. The exhibition presents iconic looks for both women and men from the 1950s to present, borrowed mainly from the Pierre Cardin Museum in Paris, and includes several dresses from the SCAD Permanent Collection. Cardin has said, "The clothes I prefer are the garments I invent for a lifestyle that does not yet exist — the world of tomorrow." The exhibition celebrates Cardin’s spirit and vision, both unwaveringly inspired by the future.

In addition to his contributions to fashion, Cardin is a design innovator whose pursuits extend to accessories, costume design, jewelry, product design, fragrances, furniture, theatrical production and more. The designer is also recognized as the first haute-couture designer to democratize design; in 1959, Cardin broke from tradition by debuting a runway show of affordable "ready-to-wear" clothes inspired by his couture lines. This move revolutionized the fashion business and made his designs accessible to a modern clientele.

Cardin has been the subject of several major international exhibitions including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York and Victoria & Albert Museum, London, and his garments are in important permanent museum collections worldwide. Three times he has received the prestigious Golden Thimble award for French haute couture, which rewards the most creative collection of the season (1977, 1979, 1982) and was recognized with the Council of Fashion Designer of America Award in 2007. In addition to receiving numerous honors, Cardin was designated UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador and is decorated as a Commander of the Legion of Honor, the highest order of merit given by the president of France for military and civil distinction.

The Handmaids Tale

SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion + Film presents eminently evocative costumes from the Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning Hulu original series, produced by MGM Television, "The Handmaid's Tale," designed by Ane Crabtree. Adapted from the classic novel by author and activist Margaret Atwood, "The Handmaid’s Tale," starring Elisabeth Moss, Joseph Fiennes, Samira Wiley, Yvonne Strahovski and Alexis Bledel, is the story of life in the Republic of Gilead, a modern totalitarian society sited in the former United States.

This debut museum exhibition of Crabtree’s work reveals the masterful storytelling inherent in her creations, for which she was recently honored by the Costume Designers Guild. From text to textile, Crabtree elevates the garments to a momentous role as vital to the acclaimed series as the actors’ performances. Her conscious use of color to connect and simultaneously separate the state’s classes is compelling, and the subtle design details that amplify and advance the humanity and individuality of the complex characters are captivating.

Co-curated by Alexandra Sachs, executive director of SCAD FASH and Atlanta Exhibitions, Rafael Gomes, director of fashion exhibitions, and SCAD alumnus Mangue Banzima (B.F.A., fashion marketing and management, 2014), the exhibition features 45 cinematically styled costume designs from season one and season two of the hit series, which premieres Wednesday, April 25, 2018.

In addition to her award-winning designs on "The Handmaid’s Tale," Crabtree has earned nominations for her work on critically acclaimed shows such as "Masters of Sex," "Pan Am" and "Westworld."

Born in South Dakota and raised in Kentucky, Crabtree studied fine arts at Harlaxton College, Lincolnshire, England, and fashion design at the Fashion Institute of Technology, New York, New York.
