RABANNE AND H&M LIGHT UP THE NIGHT WITH PARTY-READY LOOKS AND LUXE LOUNGEWEAR
In the latest instalment of its acclaimed designer collaboration series, H&M links up with the house of Rabanne on a high-energy collection of shimmering show-stoppers. Fusing radical design with innovative craftsmanship, the covetable collection draws on the futuristic creations of the house’s late founder Paco Rabanne, re-energised with contemporary urban ease since 2013 by creative director Julien Dossena. Famous for his boundary-breaking couture designs in metal, moulded plastic and paper, Paco Rabanne redefined glamour in the 1960s with his now-iconic metallic mesh dresses. Today, Rabanne takes revolutionary, retro-inflected style to a new dimension with an effortlessly elegant collection for H&M.
Feeling the cool pull of the 1970s pool party, the collection heroes shimmering disc-o-rama dresses, slinky ribbed knits, and luxe loungewear destined for cocktail hour. Drawing on the glamorous heritage of Rabanne, the Parisian house’s creative director Julien Dossena was enthused by the idea of a spirited, optimistic lifestyle, combining archival metallic mesh and mirrored paillettes with sharp tailoring and dancefloor-dominating accessories. The collection includes womenswear, menswear, shoes and accessories, as well as an H&M Home décor capsule that complements the fashion collection. It will launch in selected stores and online at hm.com on 9 November 2023.
“Founder Paco Rabanne was the master of metal, famous for shaking up Parisian haute couture with Space Age modernism. In the same spirit, Julien has brilliantly reinvigorated an iconic brand, infusing it with fresh energy. It’s a joy to be able to bring such exciting, instantly recognisable Rabanne designs to our customers with this dynamic collection,” says Ann-Sofie Johansson, creative advisor at H&M.
