Paco Rabanne Showcases Its Avant-Garde Spirit for SS21
Inspired by the founder’s first-ever collection.
Paris Fashion Week is drawing to a close and we’ve seen jaw-dropping collections from a number of brands like Givenchy, Dior, Versace and more. Just last weekend, Paco Rabanne presented its Spring/Summer 2021 womenswear collection designed by the label’s Creative Director, Julien Dossena.
This season, Dossena decided to pay homage to Paco Rabanne’s first collection, “Twelve Dresses in Unwearable Materials,” which debuted back in 1966. With the concept of avant-garde in mind, the brand’s latest garments include reimagined everyday essentials and exaggerated yet wearable pieces. Models walked down the runway in geometric and flowery assemblages, as well as bustiers and baby-doll dresses layered with elongated tailored jackets or relaxed, metal mesh robes. Boots set on top of tubular steel frames round out the line, which have been reworked from the label’s archive.
