This vintage 1970s Pierre Cardin logo speedy bag is FANTABULOUS! The logo covered satchel is not OTT....the logo makes a nice eye-catching pattern and isn't 'in your face' look at me. Sadly, the top handle bag has seen better days. (Maybe they were left behind in Studio 54?) The bag has stains on its exterior, the corners all show wear and one of the handles shows wear. That said, still plenty of Fashion Life left in this bag. The bag has been priced accordingly for its condition.
Pierre Cardin has been a visionary designer. He is the man who brought the world the bubble dress in 1954, runway shows to department stores in 1959 and couture to communist China in 1975. He is probably best known for his 1960s Space Age fashion. Before launching his own salon in 1950, Cardin's previous employers include Elsa Schiaparelli, Jean Cocteau, Christian Bernard and Christian Dior.
