Bienvenue to the world of Pierre Cardin, where timeless yet contemporary meets French heritage and the spirit of Paris. The French designer, with his aristocratic Italian attitude, opened his first menswear store in Paris in 1950, gradually earning a reputation as a modern menswear manufacturer. Contemporary and timeless, of high quality with durability, featuring a clear silhouette and meticulous details, inspired by our heritage and never constrained by trends - pierre cardin offers impeccable style for a global audience – from work to weekend.

Whether a suit or a blazer paired with sneakers or classic shoes for work, or a playful look with high-quality knitwear, jeans, and a casual shirt on the weekend. The pierre cardin man is confident and has an eye for details. He always wears his look with comfort and ease, ready for whatever the day may bring.

Excellence in the wardrobe, from work to weekend. Four keywords encapsulate the brand's principles – Contemporary. Stylish. Confident. Aspiring.

I wanted my name to become a brand and not just a label.
