Designer Spotlights

Designer Spotlight: Paco Rabanne

Who? Paco Rabanne

When? Born 1934, fashion house founded in 1966

Where? Born in Spain, based in France

What? Summer 2014 collection

Many things changed for Paco Rabanne, a genius of the 1960s fashion world. He was born in Spain and originally studied education, but he’s since ended up dominating the French fashion industry, first making jewelry for big-name fashion houses like Dior and Balenciaga, then opening his own eponymous fashion house in 1966. He is known for his extravagant costume designs, but his recent ready-to-wear collections are equally enticing. For his Summer 2014 collection, Rabanne showed edgy but casual looks, often blending menswear elements with femininity, like with a silky slip underneath a long trench or utilitarian dresses and fitted trousers.
