Envisioning radical dress reform determined by technology and planning a reductive style of the moment, Cardin was, along with Courrèges and Ungaro, a prophet of the 1960s speculations toward a future. An A-line geometry was inflected by the ornament of a band and target. Cardin's emblem was as referenced as Jasper Johns's anatomical Target (1955): Cardin makes the pieced-in band and circle a visual waistline.
