  • Description

    PIERRE CARDIN THE FASHION DESIGNER OPENED A SALON FOR MEN IN PARIS TODAY (TUESDAY). CALLED "TOUT POUR HOMME" (EVERYTHING FOR THE MAN); IT IS THE CLIMAX OF THE DESIGNER'S VENTURE INTO THE WORLD OF MENS FASHIONS.

    AMONG GUESTS AT THE COCKTAIL PARTY WHICH MARKED THE OPENING OF THE SALON TODAY WERE M. MARCEL ACHARD A MEMBER OF THE FRENCH ACADEMY, AND M. HERVE ALPHAND, OF THE FOREIGN OFFICE WHOSE WIFE IS CARDIN'S COUTURE DIRECTRESS.

    THE FIVE STOREY SHOP IS IN THE FAUBURG ST HONORE, JUST OPPOSITE THE ELYSEE PALACE, AND NOT FAR FROM CARDIN'S SALONS FOR WOMEN. MODERN ABSTRACT PAINTINGS HANG ON THE WALLS AND THERE IS A LARGE SURREALISTIC SCULPTURE AT THE FOOT OF THE CIRCULAR STAIRCASE.

    CARDIN FIRST MOVED INTO MEN'S FASHION FIVE YEARS AGO AND NOW THE MALE SIDE OF HIS DESIGNING BRINGS HIM AN INCOME SIX TIMES GREATER THAN HE MAKES DESIGNING WOMEN'S CLOTHES. HE IS THE ONLY FRENCH DESIGNER WHO IS COMPLETELY SELF-FINANCED AND HIS FASHION EMPIRE WILL EXTEND EVEN FURTHER NEXT MONTH WITH THE OPENING OF TWO MORE BOUTIQUES FEATURING MEN'S AND WOMEN'S FASHIONS.
