Past, Present, Future
Sixty years of creation are exhibited under the glass house's lights.
The « Past, Present, Future » Museum located in St Ouen outlines Pierre Cardin's creative passion for Couture, accessories, jewelry and design.
« Each one of my creations is an echo for the artistic, social and scientific events of the last 60 years » Pierre Cardin reminds us. He introduced his futuristic universe in the « Past, Present, Future » museum.
A three level stage home for the 200 couture models, since his first creation in 1951: souvenir from his passage with Christian Dior, until the 200 years, by way of the 1965-1975 cosmos years. The « Past, Present, Future » Museum delivers the ever creative motion of the dress maker. This precursor's numerous inspiration show his determination to be different than everybody else ,which can be observed in the evening gowns with steel neck and breast plate, directly inspired by automobile bumpers.
The fashion designer is also a furniture designer. Pierre Cardin leaves a preferred space for his lacquered furnitures, his objects and lamps dreamt of in the 70's. He names them « Utilitarian Sculptures »
The « Past, Present, Future » Museum exhibits a multitude of futuristic accessories such as hats, masks, sunglasses, jewelries, belts and shoes.
