Courreges charcoal and white houndstooth wool suede suit, 1961 France. Infused with a fashion-forward sensibility, the suit reflects the couturier’s training at Balenciaga. Courrèges reinforced the suit’s angularity with a bold houndstooth fabric, the pattern matched with precision. Advanced tailoring techniques were required for the jacket to stand away from the body in such a sculptural manner. Museum at FIT New York.
