Vintage ANDRE COURREGES Paris Swarowski Brooch Pin - Prototype in Original Box
Another piece of Haute couture custom jewellery, original, in box and a numbered atelier prototype, from a lot of only 25 made. So...from Paris, an authentic brooch from the unconventional Andre Courreges, the one who gave us the minimalism, liberated us from the structures of the 50's, created the unmistakable Space Age fashion and more. This unique piece of jewellery comes just in time for the gift giving season.
