Get ready for a Courrèges coup. Known as a staunch futurist, André Courrèges was unafraid of designs most people dubbed as “out-there.” And, wearable or not, former Young & Rubicam ad execs Jacques Bungert and Frédéric Torloting have been trying to bring the house back to life. Not limited to making clothes, “Courrèges 2.0” plans to expand into not just clothes, accessories and makeup, but architecture, design, music and electric cars. [The Cut]

A 230,000-square-foot Bloomingdale’s will also open there. Both plan to open in 2018. [Women’s Wear Daily]
