There's so much positive and well-deserved style talk about our favorite show Mad Men, which is so beautifully costumed by Janie Bryant. As the show enters the mid 1960s, the men are getting a little more mod and the women are moving from body clinging Marilyn Monroe silhouettes to more A-line shapes like this Pierre Cardin dress below. This is a Cardin dress from the 1980s revisiting Cardin's famous 60s mod silhouette and futuristic contract colors and pockets. It comes from a large Greenwich estate of a woman who befriended Monsieur Cardin and bought many of his eccentric pieces he did in the early 1980s. Many of those pieces are being sold at the fabulous Opening Ceremony boutiques during our Decades Pour Opening Ceremony collaboration. We kept this dress close to our heart so we hope some mad mod woman grabs this dress and enjoys it for the fall!
