Haute couture car

Courrèges, the fashion house run by André and Coqueline Courrèges, is not only responsible for inventing the mini skirt in the 60s, but is also a long-time promoter of electric cars for a cleaner earth.
Their first battery-powered car drove around the stage during a fashion show in 1969, at the beginning of their couture career. Since then, Coqueline Courrèges has realised three other prototypes: the Bulle in 2002, the EXE in 2004, and the Zooop in 2006.
BRIGHT visited her in Paris and raced around in this yellow bubble car.
