Born in Italy in 1922, Pierre Cardin grew up in France, where he still resides. Fascinated by the world of fashion, he began an apprenticeship as a tailor when he was just 14 years old and later moved to Paris to work in the fashion industry.
Soon after his arrival in the capital, he met Christian Dior, who invited him to work in his newly opened atelier. In 1950, sensing that the industry was changing, he opened his own atelier.
Cardin presented his first collection in 1953 and was immediately a huge success. Thanks to his futuristic style and bold creativity, he soon became a significant name in the fashion world.
From then on, every step he takes is a winning move!
Today, Pierre Cardin's aesthetic is globally recognized and continues to be a major influence in the fashion world. Exhibitions pay tribute to his achievements around the world: in New York (from July 2019), in Düsseldorf Germany (from September 2019) and at the designer's own museum in the French capital.
And his watches celebrate the authentic and bohemian Parisian lifestyle. They are bold yet elegant. Pierre Cardin's iconic signature combined with current trends and classic aesthetics inspires the collections. The result is unique timepieces designed to last forever.
