Courrèges in the Marais, return to favor of the neo-60's look!

The return to favor of the neo-60s look catches our eye in the window of the new Courrèges boutique. Unmissable, this white space with its radical style gives Rue Vieille du Temple an unexpected retro-futuristic perspective.

Before its upcoming opening, we can already see curves and straight lines of immaculate white, punctuated by colorful silhouettes, timeless icons of the House.

It is in this decor of padded minimalism that we will soon be able to wear the very latest collections designed by Nicolas Di Felice.

For next season, the wardrobe composed by the new Artistic Director gives way to “neostalgia”. Faithful to the visionary couturier, he revives the spirit of the 1963 collections by reinterpreting the classic mini-skirts and vinyl pieces with graphic lines, “as if it had been telescoped from a Brussels nightclub – where he came from – to 6th arrondissement of Paris”.

It is with the desire to address new generations that the young designer imagined clothes “emblematic of a life” and not of a single season.

It is also for this reason that the brand revitalized the original Courrèges canvas by creating an eco-friendly vinyl composed of 70% organic polyurethane.

You will see, these new, more accessible timeless pieces are as desirable as they are durable.

Tattooing, an age-old practice, has long been the prerogative of convicts, dock workers, the underworld and sailors. Although it has become democratized, now affecting all profiles and concerning one in five French people, including 16% women compared to 10% men, it still remains taboo due to its definitive and transgressive nature.
