Le Futur

The SCAD-produced animated film Le Futur is a spirited meditation on the storied life and career of fashion designer Pierre Cardin, a dear friend of the university. Cardin’s tale is set in motion by a fortune-teller in Vichy who divines his destiny to become a sensation the world has never known. From Schiaparelli to Dior to his own legendary house, Cardin reflects on his métier in an intimate conversation with SCAD President and Founder Paula Wallace. Legends in their own right, André Leon Talley, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Maryse Gaspard recount how Cardin transformed the world with his avant-garde sensibility and prescient vision. Cardin’s sage reflections set an intention for the soul: Creativity is life, and life’s quest is to design the future.
