The Paco Rabanne x MATCHESFASHION.COM Exclusive Launch Features An Iconic Bag & The Vacation Dress Of Your Dreams
Whilst minimalist lines are certainly enjoying a hey day of late, there's still something to be said for striking, over-the-top designs that live by a "more is more" decree. There's no easier way to make a glamorous statement than with lots of glitz and luxe materials, and no one knows that better than Fresh design house Paco Rabanne. Now, to celebrate the iconic brand's 50th anniversary, the Paco Rabanne x MATCHESFASHION.COM exclusive launch has officially landed at the online retailer — and it's filled with the party-ready essentials you'll want to wear on repeat.
Paco Rabanne is celebrating its 50-year anniversary in 2019 by partnering up with luxury onliner store MATCHESFASHION.COM. And on June 4, the celebrations kicked off when the duo dropped an exclusive curation with contemporary takes on some of the brand's most iconic designs, including pieces that pay homage to Paco Rabanne's provocative use of chainmail in unexpected places. The capsule, dubbed the 1969 collection, is an ideal blend between vintage and modern — and it's only exclusive to MATCHESFASHION.COM for two weeks, so get it while it's hot.
On first glance, there's one thing you're sure to notice in the Paco Rabanne x MATCHESFASHION.COM drop: Lots and lots of paillettes. It's a hallmark feature of Paco Rabanne's designs, which have always sought to turn conventional industry ideals on their head to create something innovative, and of course, extravagant. These new drops are no exception, as they push the label's then-provocative opulence into the present day.
The central piece of the celebratory collection is the 1969 anniversary bag, a luxurious, jewelry-like piece of arm candy that's covered in metallic chainmail-woven paillettes. The slinky, pouch-shaped silhouette is handmade and rendered in several different metallic finishes from antiqued gold to platinum — plus this cool, modern clear acetate iteration for $1,790 — and features an adjustable strap that can be worn long or doubled up to sit higher on your shoulder. The Bi-colour 1969 chain shoulder bag, $1,590, presents another playful interpretation, with alternating gold and silver discs that shimmer, day or night.
The ready-to-wear pieces included in the drop are equally as eye-catching, with plenty of embellishment and party-ready appeal. The Chainmail sequin mini dress, $2,750, is ready for a night of shimmying across a dance floor, and the metallic-thread Geometric jacquard dress, $610, could easily go from afternoon to evening with a shoe change and some sparkly accessories. And with summer vacations fast approaching, snag the collection's Rose-print ribbed-jersey midi dress, $540, for wandering through Tuscan vineyards or lounging beachside in the Hamptons — it's fit for literally any warm-weather locale.
