Vintage Pierre Cardin Silk Scarf - 1960s - Pink/Beige/Black A beautiful 100% silk scarf by the French designer Pierre Cardin fro the 1960's. The scarf is in shades of raspberry pink, red, black and beige with different patterns within squares. It has a hand rolled and stitched hem, and his signature in one corner, along with the words New York Paris. The scarf is in lovely condition, although there is a tiny stain in one square, which I have shown in the last photograph. Bought recently in Paris at Porte de Vanves, this is a very striking vintage silk scarf by the designer Pierre Cardin.

After the end of World War II, Cardin moved to Paris and worked for a succession of couture houses, before taking a job with Christian Dior in 1946. Cardin went solo in 1950, and quickly won attention for his novel style.
