For the PFW I chose a total look by Courreges. Maybe because at this stage of my life I feel very forward-looking.
And today I can also take the chance to tell you about a fashion designer which is very important for me, Andre Courrèges.
Thanks to him, in the mid-70s there were the first experiments of new materials in clothing and women have begun to express their desire to be free and uninhibited. These are the years of Star Trek, one of the masterpieces of cinema, which Courreges has got inspired by in its expression of the concepts of future and freedom. And so freedom to the the geometric cuts, new shapes and innovative materials (besides Andre it was actually an engineer).

In all this geometry, eccentricity and contagious futuristic ma,dness Courrèges has never forgotten the women, their forms, their desires. And that’s why, even though you may think the opposite, these dresses, these short cuts and creative details actually enhance the beauty of women (although in a completely futuristic and modern vision).
And here you go the first outfit of this fashion week.
A little girl, a little Moon Girl. With the pastel “folder” and silver boots, ready to get on my spaceship :-) !

Pour la semaine de la mode parisienne, j’ai choisi comme première tenue un total look de Courrèges. Peut-être parce que en ce moment de ma vie, je me sens tournée vers le futur. Et aujourd’hui, je profite de ce moment pour vous parler d’un créateur de mode très important pour moi, André Courrèges. C’est grâce à lui que au cours des années 70 on a eu les premières expériences avec des matériaux nouveaux dans la mode et qui les femmes ont commencé à exprimer leur désir d’être libre.

Ce sont les années de Star Trek, l’un des chefs-d’œuvre de science-fiction du cinéma, auquel Courrèges s’est aussi inspiré pour exprimer sa conception de l’avenir et de liberté. Sa formation d’ingénieur a rendu ses créations extrêmement construites et architecturées. Courrèges raccourcit les longueurs, joue sur les matériaux et les formes comme avec ses bottes et vêtements en PVC, excelle dans l’utilisation du blanc avec la fameuse petite robe blanche et abuse des couleurs contrastées. Malgré la géométrie, il n’a pas oublié de souligner la forme des femmes en créant des robes courtes et de combi-short, en pleine révolution culturelle.

Et voici ma première tenue de cette semaine de la mode. Un peu petite fille, un peu Moon Girl. Avec mon cartable bleu pastel et mes bottes argent, prête à monter sur mon vaisseau spatial :-) !

Per la PFW ho scelto un total look Courreges. Forse perché in questo periodo della mia vita mi sento molto proiettata al futuro. Ed oggi ne approfitto per parlarvi di uno stilista molto importante per me , Andrè Courrèges. Grazie a lui, nella metà degli anni 70, si sono avute le prime sperimentazioni di materiali nel campo dell’abbigliamento e le donne hanno iniziato ad esprimere la loro voglia di essere libere e disinibite. Sono gli anni di Star Treck, uno dei capolavori del cinema , a cui Courreges si sarà ispirato per esprimere il suo concetto di futuro e libertà. E cosi via ai tagli geometrici ed a nuove forme ed ai materiali innovativi ( del resto Andrè era un ingegnere in realtà) . In tutta questa geometria, eccentricità e nella contagiosa follia futurista, Courrèges non ha mai dimenticato le donne, le loro forme, i loro desideri. Ed é per questo che, nonostante si possa pensare il contrario, questi abitini, questi tagli corti ed i creativi dettagli, esaltano la bellezza femminile (seppur in una visione del tutto futurista e moderna).

Ed ecco il primo outfit di questa settimana della moda. Un po ragazzina, un po Moon Girl. Con la “cartella” color pastello e gli stivaletti color argento , pronta per salire sulla mia astronave :-) !

    I love the ingenuity of these ‘Moon Girl’ ensembles. Very clean lines. Monochromatic. Very chic and wearable. Also, the combination of the knee high stockings and silver boots is perfect. Love love love <3
