About

Beige tweed button down pencil skirt from French fashion house Courreges who dominated the 1960's with their revolutionary and often imitated designs. The perfect transitionary skirt, this design could be worn with thick wool tights and pumps for a winter work ensemble or dressed down with a cropped top and sandals for casual summer wear.

Courreges was started by Andre Courreges in 1961. He began his career with Jeanne Lafaurie and Balenciaga before developing his own line. His designs defined the 1960's. He is often credited with inventing the miniskirt and his white ankle boots were the first go-go boots. His pieces were very simple and often featured geometric aspects and pops of color. He also popularized the use of less commonly used materials for the time such as lycra and vinyl.
