Artistic director Julien Dossena, who took over the reins of the luxury brand in 2013, recently inaugurated the new 153-meter Paco Rabanne store2 on the corner of Avenue Montaigne and Rue François-Ier. The flagship was inspired by the futuristic world of its founder: orange carpeting and lamé curtains recall the contours of a flying saucer as well as the designer’s iconic pieces.
A universe that has been unique to the house since its founding in 1966. The collections, skirts, and dresses in brass are highlighted by a set of illuminated aluminum shelves and racks. The boutique was designed by Dutch architect Sabine Marcelis, who mixed pastel colors, marble, concrete, and silver furniture. An adjoining room houses archives and vintage clothing; past, present, and memories are intertwined.
