The Paco Rabanne Fall 2018 Ready-to-Wear collection debuts metal shingles in chain-like sequences that eerily reminisce of knight armors during the medieval ages. The busy structure of the well-assembled materials is consistent throughout the runway. Models strut down the catwalk in expressive footwear, bold handbags and intricate dress overlays, as well as other garments that boast the detailed and varying metallic structure.
Setting aside the obvious knight armor-inspired motif, Paco Rabanne's Fall 2018 Ready-to-Wear collection is also strongly informed by the luxurious fashion house's past. Delving into the archives, "some literal recreations of specific garments" were present, such as a "mirrored shift worn by Audrey Hepburn in 1969," as well as "a white chain-link top once modeled by Françoise Hardy."
