The Pre-Fall 2018 collection by Paco Rabanne designed by Julien Dossena reinvents office and street garments to create a ladylike wardrobe with basic elements to become maximum exponents of femininity.
The garments range from jerseys second-skin to tight dresses and shorts where the rounded finishes stand out and braille embroidery in black layers. The gray is repeated several times, almost becoming the protagonist. The proposal has several layers whose shapes are drawn in the various garments in addition to having an element that stands out, the brightness.
The collection includes a tribute to Francoise Hardy, the muse of Rabanne, with a printed jersey dress which has, as main image, the cover of one of her albums.
In terms of footwear and accessories, the proposal expands towards the western side, being the inspiration icons of that genre. With references to the “Santiago” silhouette boots converted into leather boots or chelsea boots.The line of bags expands with a new design of long handle for the night, and the “Element” returns to the silhouette bucket and the clutch format
