The Paco Rabanne spring/summer 2014 collection presented at Paris Fashion Week brings a mini revolution up on the runway. Julien Dossena, who has presented the first results of his work as the creative director of Paco Rabanne, didn’t miss the chance to come up with something individual and never repeated before. The garments of this collection are standing out with their bold and daring silhouettes, which combine the femininity and chic and then hide them inside the revolting and attention seeking teenage images.
The shapes of the Paco Rabanne spring/summer 2014 collection vary from one extreme to the other, at the same time keeping within the same conceptual-ideological base. Thus, here we see unzipped scuba garments, partially hiding the glittery tank tops and creating a relaxed and loose impression. The varnished leather used in every other outfit seems to be the key element of the line. It is thus found on T-shirt dresses, long-sleeved top-and-skirt combos, tight pants and sleeveless pieces, which appear to be surprisingly sporty and cute.
The surgical scrub found among the pieces is another describing key word for the Paco Rabanne collection. Coming to the pieces, we notice a contrast of pants and skirts, excluding the below-knee length for the latter, at the same time keeping within long and straight interpretations for the former. The idea of using delicate semi-transparent fabrics at times to soften some brighter shades like orange was a nice and quite effective solution with some knee length garments.
The kimono-cut sleeves are another type of demonstration of Julien Dossena’s creative ideas. The zipper elements found on the majority of the apparels are probably the best remind-notices of the sporty style being around. The finalizing shapes of the pieces, which are the second most popular ones after skirts, are probably those cool bomber jackets with zippers, presented in pairs with perfectly matching skirts.
Thus another absolutely wearable and supercool line is at your disposal dear fashionisers, especially if you give preference to rocking sporty cool looks throughout the year.
