Courrèges Is Important Virtue

He went from being an engineer to working at Balenciaga and proceeded inventing a mini-skirt. André Courrèges is the name every self-respecting fashion lover needs to know. His ultra-futuristic mind gave us so much!!  Until this day his inventions are on displays, on runways and in magazines.  Unfortunately few know the true original.  "Second-skin" tights...? André Courrèges, 1967.

These photos were taken about a month ago. We were on our way to a party and camera was on hand. Unlike other shoots, which do require some degree of preparation, this was completely unplanned, and one of the reasons for posting it now is to show the versatility of a good coat.
This is the same coat used in the post below and it is one of my all-time favorite items in the wardrobe. Simple, elegant and well made. And best of all, it's from H&M, which means it did not cost an arm and a leg.
