A Paco Rabanne Printed Rhodoïd Lamellae Couture Dress Paris Circa 1967/1970

About

Circa 1967/1970 Paris France A Slightly flared cocktail dress curved lamellae rhodoïd held by stainless steel rings from the famous french Designer Paco Rabanne. Peplum effect given by the square neckline, the diamond shape curved lamellae under the armpits, then curved in squares and rectangles growing from top to bottom. The geometric strips with rounded edges are serigraphed with random circular patterns with strong polychromy and turquoise, brown, yellow, sky blue and mustard colors. Closure in the back by steel fasteners. Without label as it was often the case for Paco Rabannne. Excellent condition of color and conservation. Dimensions: Equivalent French Size 36 Height 86 cm Shoulders 36 cm Collar 10 cm Chest 87 cm Waist 73 cm Hips 92 cm Paco Rabanne occupies, like Mariano Fortuny in a different register, a place apart in the history of fashion, with an approach based on light and architecture. In particular, he draws his inspiration from the space, the new technologies and Modern Art that characterize his time. From his first collection titled Manifesto, presented at the Hotel George V in 1966 on a music by Pierre Boulez, he desecralises the traditional values ​​of fashion. If his sources are probably from the Bauhaus School, it is part of this tradition where matter inspires form and spirit. Through the coat of mail, vinyl, leather, plastic and steel, Paco Rabanne hugs the female body in a very Space Age taste. Her muses of the time, as Jane Fonda and Françoise Hardy, will fast-track the metallurgist designer at the height of modernity far ahead of the "Haute" traditional Couture. Followers of talent, including architects Franck Ghery or Norman Foster will "mould" spaces sometimes very famous such as the Guggenheim Museum of Bilbao in 1997, or recently with Rudy Ricciotti for the MUCEM in Marseille.​
