Could there be any symbols more optimistic than a rainbow or a big red heart? For the Spring Summer 2020 collection, Paco Rabanne transmits good vibes through ecstatic displays of colour and punchy Pop motifs. With the mindset of both dreamer and realist, Julien Dossena has conceived pieces that exude joie de vivre while being versatile from day to day.
This positive, 1970s-inspired vision projects outward from the wearer, whether a heart beaming forth from a satin dress or a cropped knit top that radiates rainbow stripes. The iconic metal mesh appears as a wrap skirt and tank dress in gradient sunset hues, as do smaller jewellery items that shimmer in pink and gold. With their utopic glow, these pieces can convey an elevated dressy statement, or else a more relaxed attitude when paired with the latest Peter Savile graphic T-shirts or a casual tailored pant.
Iconic Paco Rabanne bags, meanwhile, have been given a similar psychedelic twist as colour-saturated assemblages of pastilles. Wear them with confidence through this season and beyond.
Available at the Paco Rabanne stores, 12 rue Cambon and 54 rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré in Paris, and on Pacorabanne.com
