Gli occhiali bianchi, l'aragosta e il mezzo baffo di Dalì: perfetto complemento a questo Style Into Rebellion. Sarebbe bastato, ma c'é un anniversario da ricordare.

The white goggles, the lobster & Dalì's half moustache: the perfect companion piece of this Style Into Rebellion installment. We could have stopped here, but then again, there's an anniversary to remember.

É la foto più famosa: scattata dall'ex direttore artistico di Elle, PETER KNAPP, per la collezione Courrèges Primavera-Estate 1965. É stata utilizzata per il manifesto della mostra "Les Sixties. Mode D'Emploi" [2002] svoltasi al Musée De La Mode Et Du Textile di Parigi. Un'altro scatto di Knupp é diventato manifesto per la recente esposizione "The Future That Never Was" [Gennaio-Giungo 2011] al Mode Museum di Hasselt [Belgio].

One of the most iconic picture ever: it was taken by former Elle magazine artistic director, PETER KNAPP, for Courrèges SS 1965. 37 years later the photo graced the poster of the exposition "Les Sixties. Mode D'Emploi" [Paris' Musée De La Mode Et Du Textile - 2002]. Another Knapp shot was used for the "The Future That Never Was" at the Mode Museum Hasselt [Belgium | January-June 2011].

Who the hell is Courrèges?
André Courrèges: "A 28 anni (1951) lasciai un impiego di prestigio per andare a lavorare da Balenciaga occupandomi di tessuti. Durante i primi cinque anni ho imparato qualcosa ogni giorno; i successivi cinque uno spreco di tempo. Dopo Balenciaga mi sono dato cinque anni per raggiungere i miei obiettivi. Ce l'ho fatta in due e posso dire che il successo prematuro é difficile da gestire." 
André Courrèges: "At 28 (1951) I left a flourishing job to work for Balenciaga, handling fabrics. The first five years I learned something new every day. The last five were a waste. When I left I gave myself five years to reach a certain point. Now I have reached it in two and I find that premature success is cumbersome."
