An alt-rock attitude has emerged, and it feels like spring spirit with the Paco Rabanne Spring 2021 RTW collection of irreverent layering.
Constructed pieces paired with signature metal mesh signal outré elegance, while jeans become an affirmation of the authentic self. As the most prominent and unexpected element across these looks, their ample silhouette and natural fading introduce a real-world counterpoint to the more decadent flourishes. Further juxtapositions play out between masculine and feminine – from a large gabardine coat to lace underpinnings. Among the other key themes, Leopard spots on ruched blouses, slim trousers and elongated dresses in jersey or silk appear unapologetically bold and alluring. The alt-rock influence emerges in the details: oversized ring pulls on knitwear, clear vinyl sleeves that wrap an otherwise classic trench.
Accessories are layered and worn in multiples, emphasizing individuality. Notably, Eight nano chain belts encircle waists while chunky XL Link necklaces sit atop knits and lace. Bags from the current season – including the iconic 1969, the Pacoïo, a panier handheld style and an assemblage of metal coins – all possess a certain tactility that enhances the statement.
In the spirit of grunge, the rawness one experiences within becomes a daring, unfiltered and personal manifesto. Take up space, let it all out, and give a tour to your inner world.
