Courrèges is back in the menswear game, and it’s a strong showing.
Creative Director Nicolas Di Felice revived menswear for the brand for the first time in decades. André Courrèges himself designed menswear for several seasons in the 1970s and 80s, but this collection marks Di Felice’s first time adventuring outside of womenswear.
Courrèges was founded in 1961 by André Courrèges and his wife Coqueline, and it quickly emerged as the leader of the Space Age fashion movement. André Courrèges is credited with being the founder and catalyst of the movement, responsible for launching women’s trends like miniskirts and white ankle boots.
So Courrèges has always had a modern edge. With a bit of a blank slate and endless possibilities at hand, Di Felice seems to have continued in the same vein as Courrèges had decades prior; streamlined, modern, sleek, and minimal. While he could’ve gone with an homage to the Space Age movement, he takes his own spin on what modern Courrèges means to him. There’s a balance between workwear and pieces that can take you from a vacation to the club. Between cutout tops and pants, leather coats, bodysuits (which is likely a nod to André Courrèges, who was one of the first designers to utilize them for women), and denim, this collection has pretty much everyone covered — and truly, everyone. While this collection falls under the label of menswear, Di Felice, along with so many others right now, has taken a gender-fluid approach to fashion (which we expect will continue to trend for a while).
There’s no doubt that Courrèges is hot right now — from Anya Taylor-Joy to Marc Jacobs, looks from the brand are everywhere. Perhaps one of the reasons is that the pieces are so easy to wear. This season is full of neutrals with pops of yellow thrown in, and with precise tailoring and sharp lines, the pieces are easy to throw on and can go with almost anything while still having the strong effect of making a statement.
