André Courrèges (1923)

In 1965, the French designer stimulated Paris' fashion with his innovative Couture Future collection. Shortly after, the market was flooded with plastic boots, vinyl jackets and A-line dresses. He privileged geometric forms and primary colours that became emblematic of the “space age” aesthetic of the 1960s.
