Since 2021, Courrèges has been carefully reinventing itself under the watchful eye of Nicolas Di Felice, a Belgian designer still relatively unknown to the public but with an undeniably impressive career. A graduate of the renowned Brussels arts school La Cambre, he then worked for Balenciaga, Dior and Louis Vuitton alongside some of fashion's biggest names. Having always admired the simplicity and optimism of Courrèges, initiated by its founders André and Coqueline, he is convinced that this iconic sixties brand has the potential to be reborn and revive its inimitable style. Although the Maison Courrèges has managed to hang on for all these years, its various artistic directors seem to have struggled to find the perfect formula for delighting early fans and seducing a new generation. A blue sky strewn with clouds, kisses and affectionate gestures, as meaningful as they are rare in the midst of the Covid pandemic, followed by the return of the iconic vinyl jackets and thigh-high boots: the first Courrèges collection by Nicolas Di Felice manages to simultaneously captivate and reassure. Clear, fresh, elegant, bold and sexy, the designer's vision explodes beyond the walls of the clean white setting that hosted this first fashion show. Since then, Courrèges has reasserted itself in the streets of Paris, too. With each season, the label - once synonymous with female emancipation - is newly acclaimed for its youthful, minimalist feel. Vinyl, a real trademark for the brand, is used to create ankle boots, thigh boots and logo caps. And the brand’s audacious style is applied to handbags, too, like the Baguette, Circle and Mirror, whose clean lines are embellished with buckle-laden straps. The slightly less rock 'n' roll Loop handbag – also available in baguette form – is more futuristic and representative of the heritage of the house: its crossed handles are inspired by a 1976 dress whose straps crossed in a similar way.
