Nicolas Di Felice took the fashion crowd to the Bois de Vincennes – the location has a personal meaning for him. It’s where he and his boyfriend first kissed – for his first runway show with an audience since taking over as artistic director of Courrèges.

“It’s a really special place for me”, he said of the Bois de Vincennes.
The wide-open space also vibed with the mood of the collection, which was a space-age rave. In a clean color palette of monochrome looks, the silhouettes reflected mod 1960s hems and necklines, but forwarded with modern elements of cheeky cutouts and trendy halters. The highlight of the collection was the outerwear, including bomber and moto jackets, as well as tailored trenches, which come in brown glossy vinyl, pure pink, bright yellow, black leather, and spacey chrome.
But the big story this season was the Loop. Inspired by a ready-to-wear dress from 1976, the crossed neckline appeared on everything from vinyl bra tops to dresses, t-shirts and the house’s new handbag.
“I used it because it’s the first piece that I bought from Courrèges five years ago on eBay”, said Di Felice.
