As many of you are aware the House of Courreges was purchased by Jacques Bungert and Frédéric Torloting last year from founders Andre and Coqueline Courreges.  The new owners have re-launched the collection with some classic dresses, as well as,  eyewear in partnership with Alain Mikli.  It all looks very charming and super retro, but retro in a futuristic way.  I am curious where Bungert and Torloting will take the brand.  Will it remain in a time capsule or will a Creative Director come in and manipulate the codes into fresh designs?  It's in a bit of a time warp right now, but I find all the pieces still rather timeless.  Courreges often made the perfect easy summer dress and this cotton canvas dress with nautical rope halter is from the 1990s revamp of Courreges.  It's a dress for espadrilles and a summer in Aix-en-Provence.  However you don't need to holiday in France to look effortlessly chic.  This dress is for anyone this summer who wants to beat the heat in style; and I love the fresh neckline that manages to not look retro, don't you think?
