    (from vogue.co.uk)
    Expect rumours of who will take over this house by the end of the year or they can continue being stale selling in department stores the world over. :innocent:

    £270 million is a good deal, he should go for it. Him, a "fashion leader"? :rolleyes: It's a good thing he sets himself apart from Yves St Laurent, cause they're not even comparable... :innocent:

    is this a joke? Who would pay that for a dried up company that barely even owns its own name. His name is still licensed up the wazoo, I assume that they are all going to be bought up as well like Gucci did with YSL (not to compare the too)?

    Well... Pierre Cardin was one of the greats a few decades ago; the history is what you buy, I suppose.

    With some strategic decisions, like cleaning up the licenses, and a great designer and marketing, Cardin could be elevated to the stratosphere.

    I think Cardin could easily be another relaunch to make headlines in the top magazines. It WAS quite an original line years ago. I can't think of anything from them in a long time though, save for cologne. I know it's licensed all over the place, but where is it being sold?

    Whoever the licensee is that makes Pierre Cardin dress shirts is doing a good job. You can get them at Century 21 for like $15 and the quality is comparable to shirts priced at 2 1/2 times that.

    i agree, Cardin is already making a kind of comeback since the begining of spring and his vintage is HUGE in Japan.

    i'll be glad to see a total re-launch of the label

    thanks for the topic igni :flower:

    i think they are indeed comparable with ysl considering that pierre cardin was around abt the same time as ysl then ysl had to be rescued by the gucci group.Probably Pierre may also make a strong comeback after a takeover
