Famous faces including Jean Paul Gaultier, Naomi Campbell, Sharon Stone, Dionne Warwick and Alice Cooper weigh in on Cardin’s legacy, painting a colourful portrait of a design maverick who took on everything from fashion to furniture, space suits to sports cars.

Why You Should See This Film

Is it possible to lead a more interesting life than Pierre Cardin? From helping to develop Dior’s New Look to designing suits for The Beatles, and decking out the likes of Brigitte Bardot and Jeanne Moreau, there is hardly a superstar that Cardin has failed to dress. 97 years old at the time of the documentary, his work ethic remains untarnished, never failing to turn up to the office each day.

  • There is now (at least) a half-hour gap between sessions, so that our staff are able to do a deep clean of the cinema.
