The History of Courrèges
Founded in 1961 by André and Coqueline Courrèges, the Courrèges house revolutionised the world of fashion and design, asserting its style, with a focus on structured lines and a devotion to white, later delving into more colour variations and new materials.
In 1971, ten years after launching the fashion house, André Courrèges unveiled his first fragrance, with Empreinte, a legendary 1970s scent. Then in 2015, Courrèges put its name to an iconic new creation: La fille de l’air, a remarkable, airy orange blossom fragrance.
In September 2020, Nicolas Di Felice was appointed artistic director of Courrèges. To mark the 60th anniversary of Courrèges, 50 years after the launch of the first fragrance, Nicolas Di Felice wanted to re-energise the house’s fragrance universe by shaping a unique, signature olfactory offering.
