Julien Dossena presents the Paco Rabanne Spring/Summer 2022 collection atop of Monaco’s Center of Congress. Against the backdrop of the Mediterranean and the Hexa Grace, the collection takes inspiration from Victor Vasarely. A pivotal figure for the Op art movement of the 60s and 70s which is around the same time Paco Rabanne emerged, it makes sense that these two complimenting visions meet.
Rooted in patterns and eccentric energy, this collection shows a bold new side of the house:
“Since this is now our main collection, there was a desire to explore graphism as panoply of ideas,” said Dossena. “There is both a vibration and a hand-feel to these looks that gives them so much texture.”– Julien Dossena
“I was thinking not just about optic effects but the synesthetic sensations of summer – the sound of the shore, sunshine warming the skin, light glinting off the water,” said Dossena. “And I wanted to translate these stimulations in ways that would feel immediate, immersive and sensual.”
