Paco Rabanne: Non-wearable Clothes

Thursday, 26 November 2009

paco rabanne«12 dresses made from new material but not feasible to wear», that was the name of the collection launched by Paco Rabanne in 1966 for the Fashion Week in Paris. And that was true. A young designer presented his first collection of metal dresses. The dresses were tailored in metal, and sewed with the help of pliers and blowlamp. And what about the public? It was definitely shocked. And what about Paco? He was acknowledged among the fashionable designers of Paris. In the same year, 1966, Rabanne launched another collection of dresses made from...what do you think?... paper. The idea was the trigger point for other designers and the world perceived that the clothes may be disposal. And it mattered.

The architecture world lost the genius while the fashion world gained him. Paco Rabanne studied at the National School of Art at the Architecture Department. He was skillful enough to make various fashion stuff like accessories and buttons to pay for his study. Rabanne's mother worked as the chief assistant to Cristobal Balenciaga and Paco supplied his collection items to Balenciaga House that formed his taste and mentality in the beginning. He quit to work with Balenciaga House and started to create handbags, jewels and belts for Hubert de Givenchy, Christian Dior, Ive Saint-Lorant. And only a step parted him from the world fame, and that was creation of his own clothes in 1966.

Coco Chanel called Rabanne «metallurgist» exactly for the dresses to weld not sew. In spite of the intricacy of dresses to wear in the everyday life, the design of the fashion dresses had a great impact on the fashion on the whole. Rabanne managed to combine the things that were considered non-matching before he launched his collection, like metal and organza, plastic, aluminum and leather, ostrich feathers and fur. Rabanne presented mini garments from many color chains and metal laces, weaved with paper bands, antenna hat, fabric with prints, fabric embroidered with precious stones, this was the newest breeze in the fashion haute couture world                       where a rare person may get astonished or surprised with what can happen with them. Rabanne made his collection astonishing.

The public was amazed to the extent that the unique designer models were used in cinema in show-biz artists. Françoise Madeleine Hardy, Jane Fonda, Audrey Hepburn and other celebrities of Hollywood featured in costumes created by Rabanne. Such beautiful ladies as Ursula Dilere, Sylvie Vartan, Patricia Kaas and Brigitte Bardot wear Rabanne's dresses and enjoyed them.

The designer tried holographic fiber and organic glass in 1988 and set to production of laser discs. He stated that «in the day time the clothes should reflect the business life on high speed. In the evening it should emphasize the grandeur and femininity of the Goddess», and used glittering and shining reflecting and microcrystal materials to achieve the right effect.

Nevertheless, Rabanne is a good designer to think of true and live people also, and sometimes his collections are really to use. The fragrances he presented to public from 1969 won the heart of ladies. «Calandre» (from 1969) with the charming note of cypress, «Paco Rabanne Pour Homme» and the flankers in 1973, «Metal» (from 1979), «La Nuit» (from 1985), «Sport» and its flankers (from 1986), «Tenere» (from 1988) and so forth. In 1993 he created the scent for men - XS (Excess Pour Homme), which was positioned as the perfume for beloved and sensitive man. Till up to date this scent is in the top of bestsellers of cologne for men.

Paco Rabanne House would create and launch furniture, table ware and even tablecloth and since 1989 the House produces the pret-a-porter line for women and since 1990 - for men since women are the priority for Rabanne and he once declared on his creation «I re-collect my memories on beautiful women from other civilizations»).

On the top of it, Paco Rabanne is seriously engaged in occultism. He studies so thoroughly and adheres to it so seriously that he makes predictions. They are not realized, though. For example, Rabanne predicted that the orbital station «MIR» would fall onto Paris and some other European countries on August 11, 1999. The couturier states that he predicts «events that should not come true». «I tell people on what they can change», says Rabanne. He tells that his grandma was like a «shaman», «she knew the nature secrets», and that she was the person who taught him the occult sciences.

In addition, Paco Rabanne is a writer, yet, his book «End of Time» is the story on the world conspiracy and on what to anticipate in future. When the World War III occurs, the planet protected by four elements will take revenge in earthquakes and tsunami, and planes are not able to fly since the air will not hold them any longer. Fire will avenge also for the humankind spoilt and contaminated all other environment. This is the response of the planet to our actions».

Paco Rabanne is a painter. In October 2005 in Moscow he exhibited his works named «Paco Rabanne from Inside». Till this time the paintings of the designer were estimated by Salvador Dali only. He supervises the restoration process of one of the historical buildings in St. Petersburg, and couturier showed the skills he gained as an architect. This person is rich in gifts from nature.

Currently Paco Rabanne comes to the end of his career in the world of fashion and delegates his authority to Veronika Jeanvie who is his «spirit daughter», to his words.
