Cardin Sets Couture Show at Maxim’s

The designer plans to parade evening looks for women and men on Nov. 26.

BRING ON THE NIGHT: Next week is couture week in Paris — at least it is for Pierre Cardin. The French designer plans to mark the 60th anniversary since his first fashion show by parading a high-fashion collection at Maxim’s on Tuesday.

Under the label Maxim’s de Paris, the couture collection is to focus on evening attire: cocktail dresses and evening gowns for women, and creative black tie for men, according to a Cardin spokesman.

The last time the designer put couture on a Paris runway was in 1996, the spokesman said, acknowledging the house is “atypical” with its show schedule.
