About

An enormous influence in the 1960s, André Courrèges managed to be successful in suggesting what women would wear in the future. Through his fashion designs he created a visual and metaphorical language for our contemporary idea of futurism. Designing pared down clothes and rejecting extraneous decoration, Courrèges approached fashion design as a balance between function and aesthetic. The designer’s training with Balenciaga in all aspects of design, such as drawing, cutting , sewing and fitting, is evident in his precise tailoring and forward-thinking clothing. Courrèges had a relatively short career as a traditional couturier, but many contemporary designers’ works such as that of Montana, Prada and Ungaro are reflective of his style and focus. This wool coat from Courrèges first Couture Future collection in 1967, has a clean linear shape that gives it an almost austere and military look. However, the designer redressed the balance with his use of a magnificent and a lavish splash of orange colour to create a modernist fashion garment. Constructed with a wool material, the single-breasted unlined A-shape coat features raglan sleeves and a turned down collar. It has tabs on the neckline that are repeated at the wrists. The coat has two large slant patch pockets embellished with curved flats at the hipline. A long slit fastening with a series of three buttons decorates the back from the waist to the hem.
