1974 Courreges Documented Green Print Cotton & Ruffle Organza Gown
Vibrant green and white abstract watercolor André Courrèges maxi dress dating back to his 1974 spring-summer collection. Courreges launched his 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. This stunning mid-weight polished cotton and ombré organza dress is a proper example of his vision. Very hard to find his documented pieces as well. The bodice has a low-cut zipper down bow plunge and the most sensational ruffle trim! The A-line column silhouette is so flattering because it doesn't add bulk or volume to the actual hips. Perfect for any summer event! "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 Courreges
