Press release

LACOSTE, FRANCE — The Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) re-opened its SCAD Lacoste, an imaginative center for the study of art and design sited in the beautifully preserved medieval village of Lacoste in the Provence region of France. In 2002, SCAD acquired the site and meticulously revitalized more than 30 historic structures. This summer, SCAD will host dynamic activations throughout SCAD Lacoste, inspiring students, alumni, and visitors to the region.

On Monday, June 28, the exhibition Notre Ami, Pierre Cardin, the university’s latest ode and homage to the indomitable designer, opened to the public. The exhibition features exceptional garments and two films produced by the university — including I Am Thinking of Pierre Cardin, awarded Best Fashion Documentary.

Lacoste is a beautifully preserved village in the Luberon mountains of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur. Overlooking the village is the 15th century castle that once belonged to the Marquis de Sade. In 2001, it was purchased and subsequently restored by fashion icon Pierre Cardin.
