^ Oh thank you, La bordélique. We were stumped since there appears to be some disinformation out there about M. Courrèges. I found one article that said he had died of cancer, and another article talking about his "thirty years after his death" which is totally off base since he was very active through the 90s.

How I wish these were in color!

Quote:
1970 A prim coat-dress with neat geometrical lines. It is double-breasted with a tiny off-the-neck notched collar, cap sleeves. To further accentuate the purity of its volumes, it is entirely edged with black gros-grain. Square brimmed hat and white kid ankle boots.


Quote:
1965 A nonconformist riding outfit styled in a yellow and white plaid wool. The hip-belted jodhpurs are worn with a very short and sleeveless top. Wide cowboy hat and white kid ankle boots.

1965 A youthful and off-beat dress and jacket in white and orange striped wool gabardine. The sleeveless dress stops well above the knees and has a very narrow hip belt. The short double-breasted jacket is in white reversible gabardine. The white gondolier's hat is trimmed with an orange bow.


Quote:
1971 Belted coat-dress in white wool gabardine, topstitched in orange. Matching buttons, and "AC" initials in orange patent leather patched on the back. Orange boots.

1970 Buttons and topstitching and beautiful curves are the key to this red pure wool crepe dress. The sewn-down side flap and ribbon at the throat are very Courreges 70-71. The white is repeated in the high soft boots, gloves and orb in the hair.


Quote:
1970 Buttons are big, decorating fashion this season. Courreges uses them liberally, down the front, on the turn-down rounded patch pockets, the martingale, and the shoulder tabs of this classic redingote. The champagne tone of the pure wool crepe is dramatised by the black leather of the boots. Note the topstitching at all the seams.

1970 Courreges shows a rare bit of leg. The elegant white riding boots are paired with a short long-waisted white midi in a pure wool jersey ottoman; as usual this season, Courreges belts and hems in leather, and laces the neck with a bright wool ribbon.


Quote:
1971 Courreges' pea jacket tops a white wool gabardine trouser suit. Note the buttoning, the topstitching, the belt and jacket monogram. As usual this year, the final touches are the flattest of white vinyl boots and the red baseball cap. The pea jacket is cut in beige pique wool.

1968 Courreges likes his models and his clothes to look full of sparkling good health. Here, a bouncy dress of chocolate wool jersey, with an inset waistband and front tab forming a white cross and sewn-down imitation collar. Worn with ribbed white tights and brown leather boots.


Quote:
1970 Even Courreges, who invented the mini, has lengthened his hems this Spring. In fact, this is one of his shortest styles. The wrap-over dress, in pure wool white crepe is banded in white leather. The knee socks and Mickey Mouse sun glasses are all part of the look.

1970 Lengthened minis this season chez Courreges. This one, in sky blue printed on white pure wool gabardine, has a "key-hole" neckline and orange patch pockets and sleeves. To be noted: a flaring cut-out at the hem. Mid thigh socks, bordered in orange. orange wig, "Mickey-Mouse" glasses.


Quote:
1964 One of Courreges' great classics: it has a middy jacket with a shoulder yoke cut in pale blue wool ratteen. The "stove-pipe" trousers are designed in a pale blue wool gabardine. Charming: the white kid bonnet tied with a bow on the chin.

1968 Streamlined and young, this version of the all important 1969 pants ensemble. The flared, short-sleeved top covers the hips. Creased tube pants. In yellow pure wool gabardine, trimmed with welt seams. Note the ankle boots, a must.


Quote:

1965 The look of the future: designed in a pure wool thick gabardine is this dress and jacket ensemble. The sleeveless dress is precisely architectured with a hip yoke and welted seams. It stops well above the kneecaps. The short jacket is in black and white striped gabardine with a neat off-the-neck collar.


Quote:
1971 The striking feature of this neat little white wool gabardine dress is the angle cut in the front, closed by a white button. Note the topstitching over the hips and edging the seams and short sleeves. The extra-flat white boots are an integral part of the Courreges look for Winter 71-72.

1971 This royal blue pure wool double gabardine dress is typical Courreges - very simple in cut, topstitching everywhere to emphasise the lines. Note the tiny cap sleeves, slightly flared skirt, and the famous Courreges monogram on the belt. Note the Courreges accessories - this seasons dead flat white boots with a top band, and a long-sleeved transparent white body blouse.


Quote:
1971 This young cheerful city suit from Courreges mixes a white pure wool gabardine with a fir-green-on-white pure wool houndstooth. The dress has topstitching on all the seams, and the jacket is buttoned asymmetrically. Note the tiny shoulder bag matching the jacket. The flattest of high white vinyl boots and a red vinyl baseball cap add the final Courreges touches.

1965 Trousers and short jacket designed in sky blue and white checked wool gabardine. The tapered pants have a stitched crease and a leather hip-belt, two flap pockets. The tank top stops above the waist and is closed with a zipper. Cap sleeves and funnel collar. White kid ankle boots with chopped off toes.


These two don't have descriptions.
