In three short seasons Sebastien Meyer and Arnaud Vaillant have rebirthed Courreges, reimagined the brand's space age legacy and updated its famed, sleek, 60s modernism for the 21st century. Ahead of their autumn/winter 17 show in Paris in March, we thought we'd drop them a line and ask them 20 searching psychological questions to find out what makes them tick.
