Bringing together the carefree exuberance of the 1970s, the optimistic futurism of Rabanne and a touch of retro-inflected romance, the Rabanne x H&M collection channels a modern vision of approachable opulence, joy and confidence.
“For this collaboration, I wanted to do everything I’d never do and anything I had never done. I wanted to explore shapes that were new to me, a very geometrical, simplified (if not simplistic) décor, and of course pay tribute to Paco Rabanne’s original world and era through colours and material. I valued his artistic vision, his taste. The collection itself encapsulates that spirit, and gives us something more modern, more democratic to look at and wear,” said Julien Dossena, Rabanne’s Creative Director.
There’s a floor-length tiered chiffon gown bedazzled with crystals, a crisp poplin button-up with broderie anglaise detailing and oversized pleated sleeves, a rich floral jacquard cutout dress, structured wool outerwear, gracefully draped jersey knit separates and lots of leopard print.
Rabanne H&M sparkles to its full potential when worn: glittering paillettes catch the light with every step, mirrored discs clink gently against one another, delicate chain mail glides with the body like metallic silk. Each garment is an experience, an exploration of materials, textures and motion — made to dance, laugh and live in.
Available November 9th, experience the Rabanne x H&M collection through a powerful celebration of energy, movement and light.
