Andre Courreges launched his Space-Age collection 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 chocolate-brown silk dress from 1967 is a proper example of his vision. The absolutely superb seaming highlight the cut and signature chunky zipper. I love the side white-buttons and belted-waist which create a fitted look even with his iconic a-line construction. 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."
