Founded in 1961 by André Courrèges and his partner Coqueline, the brand became known for its modernist, futuristic aesthetic.
André Courrèges was one of the most influential fashion designers of the 20th century; in the mid-1960s he changed the way women dressed. His designs included angular mini dresses and trouser suits. Many of the outfits had cut-out midriffs and backs and were worn without a bra. These were matched with flat boots, goggles and helmets taken from the equipment worn by astronauts. The stark shapes and white and silver color scheme immediately earned the name Space Age.
