Remembering Monsieur Courrèges

Very sad news. André Courrèges, the French fashion designer and sculpteur, died at the age of 92 after a long battle with Parkinson’s disease, at his home in Neuilly-sue-Seine, near Paris. André Courrèges was the founder and catalyst of the space-age fashion movement in the ’60s, he was a true revolutionary figures, responsible for liberating women from the strict, feminine silhouettes of the ’50s in favor of miniskirts, peekaboo A-line dresses, and his infamous white ankle boots. André Courrèges was also known for being one of the first couturier who worked with black models. We thank him for all the beautiful work he did all over the years. He’ll be truly missed.
