Sumary of Prix Bulles Cardin: Pierre Cardin launches new sustainable development award:
- Since Pierre Cardin’s death in December 2020, the brand has been run by his nephew Rodrigo Basilicati-Cardin.
- An engineer by training, Rodrigo intends to unveil a collection made of completely recycled fabrics to celebrate the centenary of the founder’s birth.
- Subsequently, the maison developed Objectif Terre, or Objective Earth, a series of partnerships with companies such as the European Space Agency, Arianespace and the Spatial Center of Guyana (CSG), all of which participate in Copernicus – a joint satellite project to continuously digitize and map the condition of the planet.
- It’s something my uncle strongly believed in, Rodrigo said at a press conference inside Maxim, the famous Art Nouveau restaurant in Paris, which the founder acquired in 1981.
