Pierre Cardin X FILA x Urban Outfitters

I have often thought that Pierre Cardin is one of the most underappreciated fashion designers of the 20th century. He was a bit of a rebel, a disruptor of fashion currents. His minimalist and playful approach to fashion helped defined the 60s and 70s. And one could easily argue that we still see his influence on fashion today. So it should come as no surprise that FILA has taped the 96 year old designer for a capsule collection that feels perfectly current yet nostalgic. Full of early modernist references and playful shapes, the collection feels at once 1960s yet 1980s inspired. Don’t believe me, take a look for yourself? You can cop the whole Pierre Cardin X FILA at Urban Outfitters (womenswear and menswear).

In particular, the tees (from $49 CDN) feel very modern yet very Cardin at the same time – this will easily upgrade your street style.

And of course because it is FILA, you would expect some great shoes ($94 CDN)

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.

This is Christian Dare Unedited.
