Doesn't Colette in Paris have a special Courreges department? And if I am not mistaken,Jeffrey in NY also sells the line. Not sure if its the new stuff or just a collection of vintage

I've seen some of the new jackets and they look just the same as they always were when AC was designing. I think that's the main thing that keeps people interested if it is being sold. Like Blum* said,that was AC bread & butter.
Side-note. Jeffrey's women's selection this season is absolutely TERRIBLE. So Upper-East-Side

Andre Courreges
Quote:

Andra Courreges 1923–, French fashion designer whose designs were especially popular and influential during the 1960s. He worked for the couturier CristObal Balenciaga from 1950 to 1961, when he opened his own house. Often using white, Courreges created space-age, unisex styles and is known for dresses and trouser suits featuring straight, flat lines and sheer tops that sometimes sported cut-outs. He is often credited with the invention of the miniskirt, which he frequently paired with shiny white boots. He later experimented with such looks as "gladiator" and ethnic outfits.

I love him! He is still inspiring many stylists and designers with his legacy. Those boots are wonderful and could be by Helmut Lang or Margiela these days .

decades in los angeles had an amazing courreges collection installed in their upstairs shop some time ago. some fantastic woman owned a giant closet full of his stuff, and when she died her estate sold the collection to decades. it was brilliant to see and touch, and buy if you were a tiny woman with great taste.

I love Courreges!!
The Courreges boots are, in my opinion, one of the best inventions ever in footwear. And the dresses

Thank you for the pics!

Courreges is one of my absolute favorites. I was actually going to start a thread on him but I've been maxed out on the Internet lately. Thanks, Space and Anna for pictures!

I think I've seen a jacket or sth with a similar collar cut from recent shows, is tht Dior's ?........ Anyway, tht probably suggests a copycat.

You´re right, Benzo. It´s Christian Dior Haute Couture, S/S 2005... very good point ...

I´ve personally never been a big fan of Courrèges, especially with the colours, the orange-y red, the silver and whites - I know it´s been the Zeitgeist for a certain period but for me, it instantly feels like vintage Star Trek costumes... nothing I would probably consider *wearing* (still more so than vinatge Paco Rabbane )
