This is probably why you can buy his clothing in J.C. Penny now.

Really interesting stuff, thanks for posting!

It is bewildering why the heads at Cardin would allow such rampant licensing. I realize that a quick buck is the probable reason, but they must realize that the extent to which the name has been diluted (cheap watches, pens, scarves sold at Dollar Store and Wal-mart) would completely ruin the image of the brand, doing irreversible damage.

Does anybody know what their stance is on this, currently? I believe Cardin still operates a boutique in Paris; how and why did they let it get so out of control????

It's such a shame; so many of the designs you posted are really quite brilliant.

John

I agree with you wholeheartedly John-

if they were trying to make quick money, they were shooting themselves in the foot, by completely washing away all brand exclusivity or credibility
