Paco Rabanne occupies a special place in the history of fashion, with an approach based on light and architecture. He draws his inspiration from the space, new technologies and Modern Art that characterise his era. From his first collection, Manifeste, presented at the Hôtel George V in 1966 to music by Pierre Boulez, Paco Rabanne desacralized the traditional values of fashion. Although his sources were probably the Bauhaus School, he was part of a tradition in which materials inspired form and spirit.
