Gorgeous Andre Courreges wool twill numbered couture coat dating back to his 1969 collection. 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. This stunning futuristic fern-green wool coat is a fantastic example of his vision. Stitched relief pattern throughout, parts of which are padded within, to create depth. The bodice has a beautiful rounded collar with double-breasted closure. I love the dramatic over-sized mod pockets and built-in waist belt. As Andre Courreges once said, "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."
