1969 André Courrèges Black Vinyl-Bows Minimalist Space-Age Mod Gown
An ultra chic André Courrèges Paris vibrant black minimalist gown dating back to the late 1960's. Andre Courreges launched his unique space-age collection in 1964. The shapes of his clothes were geometric: squares, trapezoids, triangles. The main features of his ultra-modern, uncluttered look spread quickly throughout the fashion world, especially the miniskirt, which he introduced to France. This futuristic maxi dress is a proper example of his vision. The bodice has the most beautiful vinyl bows decorating each shoulder front and back. The long slim slight A-line silhouette is very flattering as well. As André Courrèges once said, "The woman who interests me doesn't belong to any particular physical type. She lives a certain life, however. She is active, moves fast, works, is usually young and modern enough to wear modern, intelligent clothes." A wearable work of fashion history.
This iconic 1960's Courrèges maxi dress is in beautiful condition with no rips, stains or holes. Only sign of age are a few minor pulls to the fabric. Original zipper on the side and bows has hooks to fasten. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
