Paco Rabanne Paris Fashion Week Aw15
A fresh vision for autumn/winter 2015. Contemporary, and not just because of the proliferation of large-togged zips. Jackets were bulky, sporty even. Shoes were flat, patent leather black things – either modish Chelsea boots or zip front flats. There was even, shock horror, a flip-flop! But under Paco’s masterful direction, the incorporation of the shoe was anything but a flop. Our highlight was this dress – something like the skin of an tropical fish from the Great Barrier Reef or a curtain in a louche 70s nightclub. Cool, crisp and commercial viable.
