Founded in 1961 by André and Coqueline Courrèges, the Courrèges house revolutionized the world of
fashion and design. Movement, purity, colour, light… such are the hallmarks and distinctive style that
Courrèges began asserting as early as 1965 with the emphasis on structured lines and the focus on
white, before branching into colour variations and new materials, such as vinyl. Eminently optimistic
and full of energy, Courrèges has blazed a trail in every field where it has ever dared to venture, such
as perfumes in 1971 and menswear in 1973.

The revival of this legendary brand is now taking on a new dimension with the decision to change the
positioning strategy for its fashion, accessories and perfume activities. It is still focused on its mission
of continually offering a growing range of innovative and modern designs in keeping with the brand’s
original ideals.

Building on the extraordinary heritage associated with the brand, the Courrèges project takes a new
turn in 2020 with the nomination of Adrien Da Maia, CEO and Nicolas Di Felice, Artistic Director, to
