The Courage of Courrèges

André Courrèges (March 9, 1923 — January 7, 2016)

Fashion architect, futurist, iconoclast, Courrèges was the astronaut of the 60s mod.

Courrèges is gone now, and—sadly—his view of futuristic positivism has long been dispatched. His legacy will be treasured...and maybe someday we will be ready to go back to his future.

The 1969 group shot of the 4 models in metallic is timeless! It could appear as an ad today for a multitude of purposes (lifestyle, perfume, hey even candy...). Thank you for sharing.

I thought the same thing Denise! I believe that one is Bert Stern's work.
