• Short Summary

    Fabulous colour footage of new paper, leather and metal fashions by Paco Rabanne.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'EXTRA!' (Metal Fashions.)

    This item is in colour.

    Paris, France.

    Various shots of models wearing fabulous new fashions by designer Paco Rabanne walking around the strange, stone structures beside the private pool of Teiki (? the actual pool is not seen). The clothes are amazing, colourful creations - a mini-dress covered in a flower design; a long dress in orange sequins with circles of colourful metal over the chest and armholes.

    A girl walks down a partly-covered stone stairway wearing a black dress with full skirt decorated with plastic coloured flower shapes (we don't get to see much of it). Another model wears a black and white paper dress with red belt and huge black buckle. Three models wear dresses made of fringed leather in bright yellow and blue - the blue one is a kind of tunic, fringes from the shoulder to the thigh, seemingly worn with nothing underneath! A girl with her hair in plaits, Hiawatha-style, and headband wears a little top and skirt covered with cream fringing. She switches her hips to make the fringes sway.

    Several shots of girls wearing dresses made from metal - one looks like it is made from coins (like 'Gold Diggers of 1933'). Another is made of hundreds of metal flower shapes strung together. C/U of the model wearing matching earrings.

    C/U of a hand coming out of a cape slit towards camera. Shots of a model wearing a metal cape in black and white. Three others wear metal and fabric dresses.

    Great quintessential swinging sixties fashions!
