I was so excited when Manish Arora was announced as the new creative director of Paco Rabanne womenswear collection.
Both Paco Rabanne and Manish Arora are known for their show stopping avant-garde meticulously elaborate creations, so it felt such a great match and I was looking forward to the Paco Rabanne Spring 2012 show.
“There are a lot of similarities between Paco Rabanne and my brand, like the craftsmanship,” Manish Arora said back in February during the great fashion news announcement. “We like to work hard, we like to make dresses that take 25 people and 20 days to make and that’s the value of Paco Rabanne that I appreciate and that’s the common factor. The way he made clothes in the sixties was incredible. When I went to the archives, I looked at them and said “OK, this is me”.”
The first Paco Rabanne Prêt-à-Porter collection since 2006 presented during Paris Fashion Week, entitled Femme Lumière, was a pure female body and light devoted science fiction poetry in motion. If you haven’t done so yet, go to Vogue (yes, your magnifying glass is ready) and “read it”.
You’ll find out look no. 15 is the reason I’m writing this love letter right now. This exquisite red iridescent organza dress with sharp shoulders and sequin fringe detailing on the back of the skirt and Philip Treacy for Paco Rabanne metallic flying saucer hat with cat-eye slits.
Below a few captures of Gaga on the set of her upcoming video Marry The Night. #Can.Not.Wait.
I believe Gaga is actually the first lady to wear a look from Paco Rabanne Spring 2012 Femme Lumière collection!
This is the only fashion spoiler I’ll share with you my dears. The next chapter from Marry the Night Fashion series will be published as soon as the video is out.
