Pierre Cardin: 60 Years of Innovation

To honor this year's 60th anniversary of Italian-born French designer Pierre Cardin, a retrospective from Assouline Publishing released this past February. Authored by Jean-Pascal Hesse, director of communications at the Cardin fashion house and conseiller d'arrondissement for the City of Paris, this 200 page hardcover takes a look inside a groundbreaking career and the history of a futurist: "My favorite garment is the one I invent for a life that does not yet exist, the world of tomorrow." (Pierre Cardin)
