A vintage 1960s André Courrèges mod knit dress in a bright poppy red and white wool knit, with Peter Pan collar, and scalloped bodice and pockets. Label has been removed from this dress, which I originally believed to be a Courrèges knockoff, but now believe to be an original Courrèges. So many of Courrèges' dresses were imitated that he stopped publicly showing his work between 1965 and 1967. In 1967, he created a lower priced Couture Future line, which allowed more customers to purchase his original designs, rather than knockoffs. The last photo in my listing is a photo spread from the February 1968 UK Vogue, featuring this very same dress (photo via the wonderful Youthquaker website at ciaovogue.com, which is chock full of great vintage Vogue magazine shoots!). The copy from this spread reads as follows: "Harrods will be adding a new dimension, and particular sing, to spring by bringing Courrèges Couture Future to London...Brilliant, brief, disarming wool dress, left, Wild poppy red for the bright, short, scalloped top and scallop pockets. White for the collar, and swinging slip of a skirt."
