Starting his careers as a jewellery designer for iconic fashion houses such as Dior and Balenciaga, Spanish designer Paco Rabanne founded his namesake label in the sixties. Best known for his mini-dresses that were crafted from metal, paper and plastic, Rabanne was directional in the distinctive look of the era. Enlisting Julien Dossena as the new creative director to the label, it has been infused with his radical and innovative ideas that bring a modern approach to the labels original vision. Updating the Paco Rabanne House code Dossena offers a futuristic approach to each season as Rabanne himself did in the sixties. Unexpected asymmetry and clever construction are present throughout Dossena's sports inspired SS15 collection. With young and athletic approach to the season, dresses are modelled on bathing suits with colour blocking and daring cut outs. Skirts are draped diagonally with crisp poplin shirts and graphic knit jerseys worn oversized, exaggerating the peppy mood. The collection features subtle Rabanne accents with an innovative use of silhouettes, textures and hardware.
