Optimistic in concept and uplifting in attitude, the Paco Rabanne ‘Ciao Paco’ Summer 2021 capsule combines the brand’s favorites with fresh separates that nod to ’70s sportswear.
Slogan pieces in new colorways and stylings express the urge for escape – from the return of Peter Saville’s “Lose Yourself” to the irreverent “Ciao Paco,” which is splashed across a retro-cut bikini and swimming trunks, in addition to a selection of sweats and tees.
A flowery Liberty print plays out on draped jersey silhouettes and a crisp poplin shirt, while tie-dye in a sunset gradient enlivens a satin grouping that includes a paréo-style skirt, shorts and a sleeveless top embellished with metal 8-chain straps.
Shapely ribbed knits covered in tennis stripes, along with dark denim jeans and unisex cut-off shorts, round out the offering with throwback allure. A fishnet dress ornamented with medals recalls the souvenir aesthetic of Julien Dossena’s Spring Summer ’19 collection.
Noticeably placed on certain pieces, a rubber Paco Rabanne patch becomes an emblem of eternal sunsets. As a capsule that exudes beachside warmth and effortless cool, the piece desired by all is the Ciao Paco bucket hat, which encourages us to embrace escape, even if on staycation.
