Courrèges Numbered Couture Navy White Wool Zipper Mod Space-Age Dress, 1970s
Master of the miniskirt and guru of the go-go boot, André Courrèges introduced novel design styles in the 60s that played with stark color blocking and ignored the traditional hemline conventions from previous decades. Alongside other notable designers such as Mary Quant and Pierre Cardin, Courrèges designs captured the aura of free, fun-loving fashion epoch.
From his circa 1970 Hyperbole line, this sleeveless dress is made from a rich navy-blue wool. A semi-boat neckline frames the upper chest as a stark white zip plunges to the empire waistline marked with the iconic AC logo. At waist level, tabs from the back of the dress fasten under the bust and down the sides framing the deep field of blue with the white snaps while adding in interesting side detail.
With a modest A-line silhouette, this dress speaks volumes with its simple color palette and minimalist yet engineered design details. Capture the style of the past and imagination of the future with this Courrèges dress.
