  • Description

    SOME OF THE MOST ORIGINAL DRESSES SEEN IN PARIS SO FAR THIS SEASON CAME YESTERDAY FROM PACO RABANNE. HIS COLLECTION FOR THE COMING AUTUMN AND WINTER FEATURED GOWNS IN SILVER MESH AND CHAIN-MAIL. MANY OF THE GRECIAN-STYLE DESIGNS WERE COMPLETED BY MATCHING HELMETS IN SHIMMERING PLASTIC MATERIALS.

    RABANNE'S CHAIN-MAIL LOOK IS ACHIEVED WITH METAL AND PLASTIC, GLITTERING ORNAMENTAL SILVER CHAIN AND THE EFFECT OF THESE CREATIONS IS TO MAKE THEM DAZZLING YET ALMOST BIBLICAL IN THEIR SIMPLICITY.

    ON THE HEADS OF HIS MODELS, RABANNE PUT HELMETS OF MESH AND CHAIN-MAIL OR VAST PORCUPINE QUILL WIGS MADE OF LONG SPILLS OF PAPER. EVEN ONE BRIDE WORE ONE WITH HER WHITE DRESS, ALSO OF PAPER.

    THE DRESSES WERE MINUTELY ASSEMBLED, WITH METAL AND PLASTIC PIECES OVERLAPPED LIKE FISH SCALES, HELD TOGETHER WITH FINE WIRE CLIPS.

    THE ADVANTAGE OF THESE KINDS OF ASSEMBLED DRESS IS THAT RABANNE HAS BEEN ABLE TO USE DIFFERENT COLOURED SEGMENTS -- AN SOME MIRROR-POLISHED -- TO GREAT EFFECT.
