Pierre Cardin Men's RTW Spring 2013

What's the only thing worse than a wannabe,  avant garde, modernist  fashion show that totally misses the mark? A show that presents horribly dated and discredited futurist designs. This collection conjures up parodies from The Simpsons of 50's and 60's visions of what the "future" will look like.

I understand that Pierre Cardin was once a legendary designer but by the time I was growing up in the 80's, he had long licensed his name into oblivion so that his shirts were synonymous with generic Sears crapola. Is it surprising that the 90 year old designer's comeback show--featuring no less than 150 looks-- was a complete trainwreck?
