MARSEILLE (AFP) – Star French couturier Pierre Cardin, aged 86, is to be released from a hospital in this Mediterranean city after a 48-hour stay caused by high blood pressure, a source close to the designer said Wednesday.

Cardin, who fell and broke a shoulder-blade last week, was flown by helicopter to Marseille on Tuesday from the southern village of Lacoste, where he each year organises a music and theatre festival in a castle he is restoring that was once owned by the Marquis de Sade.

"He has had a thorough check-up and is being kept for observation until he leaves tomorrow," the source who declined to be named told AFP.

Emergency services said he had suffered a malaise but the source said "his blood pressure rose ... he was totally lucid."

Cardin last week was also briefly hospitalised for a fracture of his shoulder-blade after falling on stairs.
