  • Description

    Dynamic Paris fashion designer Pierre Cardin unveiled his latest collection for the Danes in a show at Elsinore near Copenhagen on Sunday (August 15). Importing his own French models. Cardin impressed Danish fashion experts with the sheer variety of his show -- everything from male gladiatorial harness to space age cat-suite and ponchos.

    SYNOPSIS: In Elsinore, once home of Shakespeare's melancholy Dane, the sort of black-and-white outfit worn by stage hamlets around the world gets a space age updating from French fashion designer Pierre Cardin. He unveiled his winter collection at a Danish Fashion show on Sunday.

    Cardin created a sensation even before his specially imported Parisian models pranced onto the catwalk. He launched his winter fashions at least a week before other Copenhagen fashion houses put their latest designs on show. Here's another outfit in black-and-white. As a whole, the collection contains a whole barrage of colours with some incendiary names: sulphur yellow, flame red, poison green.

    When these models first introduced Cardin's designs in Paris, the general fashion approach was described a wholly abstract, often based on diagonal and oblique cutting, with prominent handkerchief points, and uneven angular hemlines.

    And this is that Cardin suggests for the modern Danish mala. A touch of the gladiator in the leather harness.

    This summer's short-lived craze for hot-pants was entirely ignored by Cardin. But he showed a distinct liking for reviving the poncho, some traditional, some fitted like a vast in front but swinging free at the back.
