Matrix Chic. Courrèges SS17

Sébastien Meyer and Arnaud Vaillant presented their third collection for Courrèges, and although it was fairly slammed by the critics, I loved how this couple (both in life and at work) continue to re-invent this historic house. The primary focus was on dresses, which used to be André Courrèges’s best-selling signatures. Kept in frivolous mini lengths and polished white, the silhouettes matched the modernist approach to fashion of the brand’s founder. But also, they appeared to look like perfect dresses for a Courrèges girl of today. The collection featured patent-leather jackets with the brand’s arty logo, and lovely suede bikers worn over flares. Oh, and those Matrix glasses. Lily and Lana Wachowski had their own vision of the future world; Meyer and Vaillant re-image the term “contemporary” in Paris.
