About Paco Rabanne
In a denouncement of fashion’s traditional trade tools, Paco Rabanne once stated, “Far from being attached to the past, I was not only following the spirit, but also, the art, of the times. A fantastic revolution conducted with new materials.” Rabanne preferred unconventional recycled materials, metals, and complex assembly techniques, forging fashions that transcended function into the upper echelons of contemporary art, which he’d kindled a love for while studying architecture in Paris. Rabanne went on to design costume jewelry for Balenciaga, Pierre Cardin, and Givenchy before launching his own scandalous debut line, “12 Unwearable Dresses in Contemporary Materials.”
Though he refused to bow to traditional fashion standards or dilute his mission to keep questioning the process of making and showing fashion, Rabanne was lauded by his peers. In 1971, he received the high honor of being named a couturier, joining the likes of Yves Saint Laurent and Christian Dior at the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture.
Ordered this product and received it yesterday. This has been my husbands go-to cologne for YEARS. The bottle we ordered and received from Groupon smells absolutely nothing remotely similar to the 1Million Paco Rabonne we’ve purchased over the years. From what I’ve read there is ‘No refunds, unless defective.’ This certainly qualifies, because it definitely is and without a doubt, ‘defective.’
