The legendary fashion designer Pierre Cardin died at 98 last month.
For his 80th birthday party celebrating his then-50-year career in fashion at there was an epic bash at his Palais Bulles (Bubble Palace) in Théoule-sur-Mer in the south of France, overlooking the Mediterranean.
It was originally built in 1979 by Hungarian architect Antti Lovag for another Pierre, French industrialist, Pierre Bernard, who died in 1991.
Cardin was the second owner which includes a 500 seat amphitheater, three swimming pools, and ten bedrooms, each designed by a different artist. It is 12, 916 square feet with 11 bathrooms and was the perfect home for the ’60s space-age life that Cardin grew his aesthetic out of –or vice versa.
It’s for sale through Christie’s Real Estate “price upon request”. It was originally on the market for $450 million and was rumored to have been reduced the bargain price of $335 million.
If this week’s MegaMillions winner wants to spend half of their cash prize and get a place like no other on the planet (or on any other) here you go.
You may recall the last AbFab movie had Patsy & Edina ending up by driving into one of the Bubble house’s pools.
