Design Milan: Day One – Courreges at Corso Como. By Gwendolyn Horton | April 17, 2012 Fashion icon Andre Courrèges introduced the world to the miniskirt in 1961, but short skirts weren’t the only things on this designer’s mind. He also had a passion for futuristic cars. After more than 40 years, the battery-powered prototype that Courrèges made in 1968, might hit the streets as an electric vehicle in 2012. Andre’s wife Coqueline created the new design of Bulle EV (“bubble” in French), often working on it in the garage of her Paris home. DWR’s Michael Sainato stumbled upon the Bulle yesterday at 10 Corso Como, which was founded by Carla Sozzani in 1990 as a virtual narrative of a magazine layout. What do you think, is there an electric Bubble in your driving future? Click the "continue reading" link to see more photos. Best hood emblem ever. But what does the "R" stand for?
