1970s Courrèges Navy Blue Corduroy Waist-Tie Detachable Hood Jacket Coat
A stunning and totally timeless Courreges Paris corduroy coat dating back to the early 1970's. Andre Courreges launched his Space-Age look 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 stunning navy blue corduroy coat is a beautiful example of his vision. The bodice has a fantastic detachable hood and tons of pockets. My favorite part is the elastic drawstring-waist tie belt which is so figure flattering. A chic museum quality designer garment that also reads so current. "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." Andre Courrèges
