Paco Rabanne has died, aged 88
Marc Puig, chairman and CEO of Puig mentioned “I’m deeply saddened by the passing of Mr. Paco Rabanne. The historical past of Puig and Paco Rabanne started within the late Nineteen Sixties with the launch of Calandre, the fragrance created quickly after the designer launched ‘12 Unwearable Attire in Up to date Supplies.’ A serious character in vogue, his was a daring, revolutionary and provocative imaginative and prescient, conveyed via a novel aesthetic. He’ll stay an vital supply of inspiration for the Puig vogue and perfume groups, who repeatedly work collectively to precise Mr. Paco Rabanne’s radically trendy codes. I prolong my honest condolences to his household and to those that have recognized him.”
Paco Rabanne was born Francisco “Paco” Rabaneda Cuervo, on February 18, 1934 within the Basque Nation, Spain. Rabanne is understood for his avant-garde designs and his use of unconventional supplies in high fashion. He started his profession creating jewellery for Cristobal Balenciaga, Dior and Givenchy and later established his personal vogue home in 1966.
