Courrèges Fall 2019 Ready-To-Wear Collection Review
Description
Clean and sleek—these are what made Courrèges' Fall 2019 line look so current and contemporary. These were far from the bulky and geometric shapes the house offered back in their 60s and 70s heydays. Creative director Yolanda Zobel took these astronomical codes and cleaned them up for a more modern consumer audience!

We feel for Yolanda Zobel. As the relatively new creative director of Courrèges, she’ll constantly have to tow the lines between futuristic fashions and cliche costumery given the signature codes of her decades-old employer. But in her sophomore collection for Fall 2019, she succeeded in giving a contemporary take on the label’s space-age styles. In our opinion, this was perhaps one of the most fascinating collections of the entire season. She started with a clean slate (literally!) of wintry white looks in streamlined silhouettes. The cleanliness in both form and design was staggering, and you’d feel as if Earth was invaded by heavenly-clad angelic-like aliens from another planet. Then came the colors in stark combinations that exhibited spacesuit-like qualities. They had all the elements to make them look costume-y but due to Zobel’s decisive tailoring and slick proportions, they just felt modern and contemporary. Though the weird patchworking, metallic inserts, and cooky heart-shaped (at times looked like cowskin) spots looked off and misplaced, they were drowned out by the line’s overarching sleek approach. Looks like Courrèges’ own space-age look just got a lot more scintillating—with some big help from Yolanda Zobel!
