Paco Rabanne: Ready-to-wear SS16
There was a dishevelled futurism to Paco Rabanne’s SS16 collection, which in a way was also rather sporty. High tech sportswear fabrics were mixed with green army khakis and gold chain mail to create little, almost baby doll dresses, form fitting on top and flowing on the bottom, as well as masculine pegged trousers with short tufty fringing running down the sides of the legs in black. Necklines on knits were stretched, giving them the appearance of having been pulled away from the body. Think of the Paco Rabanne lady as a futuristic, slightly ravaged disco queen. A One Million Years B.C. Raquel Welch remained in gleaming chain mail.
