Paco Rabanne has died, aged 88

Paco Rabanne, the style designer, has died in Portsall, France, aged 88. Puig, proprietor of the style and perfume model confirmed his demise.

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 Clothes in Up to date Supplies.’ A significant persona in vogue, his was a daring, revolutionary and provocative imaginative and prescient, conveyed via a novel aesthetic. He’ll stay an essential supply of inspiration for the Puig vogue and perfume groups, who repeatedly work collectively to precise Mr. Paco Rabanne’s radically fashionable 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.
