SPRING SUMMER 2022
Courrèges Men’s and Women’s Pre-Collection Spring-Summer 2022
«I can feel your heartbeat – Part II», the men’s and women’s spring-summer 2022 pre-collection was imagined as a straightforward follow-up to Nicolas Di Felice’s first women’s collection for Courrèges presented last March. Sene’s club piece picks up where he left off, flying over the Paris suburbs. The silhouettes walk the same immaculate white cube, carried by the exhilarating energy of the piece. In the finale, the walls of the cube disappear to give way to a green nature. After the industrial wasteland, the edge of a forest: a claimed echo to the period when this pre-collection is presented – that of the grace of freedom finally found.
The men’s collection, conceived horizontally with the women’s collection, honors with the same intensity a silhouette that is free and radical, sharp and romantic.
The themes developed in the Fall-Winter 2021-2022 collection (1969’s cut-outs, 1963’s «atelier» checks, heritage square necklines, trapeze dresses) are repeated and scattered over the men’s and women’s silhouettes, thus reviving the spirit of a total universe so dear to André Courrèges. Like a variation on the same theme.
In the background, the subtle dialogue between the House’s heritage and the workwear archetypes dear to Nicolas Di Felice, continues to impose the vocabulary of the new Courrèges, where construction details and emblematic materials (such as vinyl or classic ribbed knitwear) are constantly welcomed but always heckled. Like this large coat with raglan sleeves, inspired by an André Courrèges coat, which is worn with a cap and a zip jacket. Or these laminated raincoats on a fine jersey with a kimono sleeve cut with a heritage shoulder. For the first time in both men’s and women’s versions,- the iconic short square jacket with piped pockets is now available in a lighter double crepe. The white heritage coat is this season a little straighter. Some new items for this pre-collection like the clog, the knotted caps or the iconic small sleeveless jacket. And new colors, sunnier, more optimistic but still soft – to better take off into nature.
« I can feel your heartbeat – Part II » like a wind of freedom blowing again.
