The Apparition : A short film by Paco Rabanne
PACO RABANNE presents THE APPARITION, a short film written and directed by Raphaël Gianelli-Meriano. Debuting alongside the arrival of the Fall 20 19 collections, the film introduces a new medium of artistic expression to the Paco Rabanne universe.
As a contemporary echo of the French New Wave movement, Gianelli-Meriano captures a powerful aura between four dynamic girls: Nora Attal, Nilaya Bal, Fishbach and Christa Theret. Leaving Paris for the Château de Millemont in the French countryside, they spend a weekend channeling mystic forces and discovering a togetherness that transcends time. Throughout the two-minute film, as well as in the shorter extracts, the feeling is one of inner and outer self, where imagination and reality coalesce.
Chapter 1 : Apparition
A floral-printed formality comes through in Nilaya’s ankle-length velvet skirt and jersey dress; while Christa’s vibe leans more rock baroque in a leopard print jacket, iridescent pink sequin vest and tailored printed velvet trousers.
