Gorgeous and well-documented Andre Courreges Paris ensemble dating back to his 1967 couture collection. Andre Courreges launched his Space-Age look in 1964. The shapes of his clothes were geometric: squares, trapezoids, triangles. The main features of his ultra-modern, uncluttered look spread quickly throughout the fashion world, especially the miniskirt, which he introduced to France. This stunning creme and light-blue grid print wool two-piece is a proper example of his vision. The sleeveless dress has an elegant block color sleeveless design with back-belted waist. My favorite part is the over-sized side pockets which is a signature Courreges touch. The matching double-breasted jacket is a statement piece in its own right. "The woman who interests me doesn't belong to any particular physical type. She lives a certain life, however. She is active, moves fast, works, is usually young and modern enough to wear modern, intelligent clothes." Andre Courreges
