Paco Rabanne celebrates the work of Japanese artist Kimura Tsunehisa with a collaboration called Paco Rabanne x Kimura. The designs feature t-shirts, bags, jewelry, hats, and knits featuring photo collages. Model Jade Nguyen appears in the lookbook images, which juxtapose the looks with vibrant backdrops.
A satin bomber adorned with a City City rubber stamp is one of the collection’s standouts. An image of an island positioned on top of a submerged planet decorates several pieces for a surreal look. Optical prints also pop with form-fitting dresses or long trousers.
The Paco Rabanne x Kimura collaboration is available now at the Paco Rabanne store, 12 rue Cambon 75001 in Paris, and online at pacorabanne.com.
“With Paco Rabanne x Kimura, manifestations of mysticism and Pop references retranscribe the DNA of the house, while active elements keep the collection grounded. Revived and newly relevant, Kimura’s art emerges as a visual message from his past to our future,” the press release states.
