Paco Rabanne dies at 88

Paco Rabanne — the Spanish designer best known for his Space-Age aesthetic, use of metallics and swift-selling fragrances — has died at 88. His death was confirmed by Spanish group Puig, which controls the Paco Rabanne fashion house and fragrance business.⁠ “Paco Rabanne made transgression magnetic. Who else could induce fashionable Parisian women clamor for dresses made of plastic and metal? Who but Paco Rabanne could imagine a fragrance called Calandre – the word means ‘automobile grill’ – and turn it into an icon of modern femininity?

Street Style from Paris Couture Fashion Week 2023

We all may have been in different places this week but you have definitely seen a couple of major fashion moments from Paris Haute Couture fashion week. Singer Doja Cat wearing the total-red outfit for the Schiaparelli show, Kylie Jenner arrived at the same venue wearing a dress with a huge Leo head (we believe Aslan from "Chronicles of Narnia" was the main inspiration), and Viktor&Rolf's show where dresses were separated from the model's body showing the women's emancipation from beauty standards. Aside from the celebrities, I was very pleasantly surprised about actual street fashion. Whether it was the pandemic, lack of funds, lack of production….. but I noticed a lot of fresh faces in blogging world. And a lot...
