"My style accompanies a silhouette, a way of moving through life.” - André Courrèges
French designer André Courrèges, known for his ultra-modern, space age designs, began his design career working at the Jeanne Lafaurie and Balenciaga fashion design houses. In 1961 Courrèges, with his wife Coqueline, opened his own house, „Maison de Courreges, “ where he became known as the father of the mini-skirt and the shift dress, known back then as the "MOON GIRL" look.
Today Courrèges is ninety and his label this season is set to work up a "youthquake." Since it was acquired a couple of years ago by business partners and former ad men Jacques Bungert and Frédéric Torloting, the label has been quietly boosting its wares on all fronts, reimagining the Courrèges look in modern cuts and fabrics for a new generation.” Via Style.com
