Courrèges
Haute Couture | Courrèges, Fashion House, French Heritage

Courrèges is a French fashion house founded in 1961 in Paris by André and Coqueline Courrèges. Emblematic of the 1960s with its miniskirts , white boots or pants, it upsets the established codes of fashion from its beginnings, and knows a great success during twenty years to be more discreet from the 1980s . Three decades later, it is reborn thanks to the impetus of two entrepreneurs who bought the brand, but also the cultural heritage of it.

The late André Courrèges was particularly known for his streamlined 1960s designs influenced by modernism and futurism, exploiting modern technology and new fabrics. Courrèges defined the go-go boot and along with Mary Quant, is one of the designers credited with inventing the miniskirt.

Courrège had strong beliefs within the liberation of fashion. He emphasized that "A woman's body must be hard and free, not soft and harnessed. The harness – the girdle and bra – is the chain of the slave." Which is why his cut-out panel garments were worn without bras.
