Pierre Cardin visited Japan in 1957 and achieved two groundbreaking accomplishments

1. He met the model Hiroko Matsumoto, who would come back to Paris with him and serve as his muse for much of the 1960s. Matsumoto was accomplished in her own right, becoming the first Japanese woman to model French couture, modeling for Vogue and becoming the face of Nina Ricci. Matsumoto also acted in Françoise Truffaut’s 1970 French New Wave film, Bed and Board, the fourth film in the Antoine Doinel series. Her film wardrobe was custom designed by Hanae Mori. In her later years, Matsumoto worked as a fashion editor.

2. Struck a deal with the Takashimaya luxury department store and became the first western designer and brand to design and manufacture collection for the Japanese market. This Cardin-Takashimaya collaboration is proof of Cardin’s 1960s integration into the worldwide sphere of fashion, as well as his hand in the introduction of Hiroko Matsumoto to the French runways (jump starting her international career), making him an early adopter and champion of the current international fashion environment.
