“You know, back in the day, Andre [Courrèges] was speaking to the young generation. I knew from my first week that it was part of the house”, Nicholas Di Felice told Vogue. And, it is precisely to this young generation that he designed this collection, on behalf of the house of Courrèges, whose creative direction he has been in charge since September 2020.
Since taking office, he has tried to breathe new life into the famous house founded in 1961 by André and Coqueline Courrèges. Graphic effects, geometric lines, unusual details, new materials … he revisits the codes of the label with a contemporary twist, as here, in this collection, with jackets and coats equipped with removable straps in the back, or faux leather straps on the front, so that we can hung on the shoulder while dancing for example. We also find the geometric or asymmetrical cuts that he introduced in the last two years in the DNA of the brand in bold t-shirts, slit and without a sleeve on one side. The rest of the collection is full of desirable pieces, with board shorts, crisp workwear-style jackets, mother-of-pearl jewelry and Neoprene thigh boots.
