Andrée Courrèges (1923-2016) is gone at 92 years old.
The visionary designer that created the famous Space Age collection and give to French style and fashion a futuristic look famous all around the world, was fighting for the last 30 years with Parkinson.
I remember thinking last January that he was one of the last fashion titans and witness of a certain golden age of French couture.
RIP, monsieur Andrée !
