Founded in 1966, fashion house Paco Rabanne stands out for unifying an avant-garde vision with modern values. Since the earliest collections in the 1960s and 70s, the Paris-based brand has explored ideas of radical craft—from the use of metal mesh as fabric that contours the body, to assemblages of unconventional materials that create kinetic silhouettes. With the arrival of Julien Dossena as artistic director in 2013, the house became infused with a youthful vibrancy reflected in his eclectic references and inspired creation whilst continuing the brand’s tradition of remaining consistently in step with the times.
