It’s a beautiful homage for this creator

What a lovely tribute. They picked the right person to speak on Mr. Rabanne and the legacy he left with us.

I wish they would make a museum or some art exhibit that features the first 12 chainmail dresses!! I bet they could still be pulled off today. That’s true, iconic fashion right there. A look that’s unique and stands the test of time. Done and done! Condolences still to his family. xoxoJJ

Paco was so famous and I am glad you had an opportunity to remember him in such a profond manner.
Jamie JohnsonFebruary 11, 2023 at 9:25 am
Weird how he was known for his chainmail dresses and the Fame bottle is dressed up in one! Fashion came full circle. Truly iconic!! xoxoJJ

I have a whole new respect for Phantom fragrance now. It’s such a futuristic bottle! Truly ahead of its time!

It is a big loss for the art and fashion world. But he will always be remembered through all his brave influences on fashion. He was always ahead of his time and will forever live on as a legend in the fashion world.

I have always loved his cologne. One of my favorite men’s fragrances!

The world loss a great talent today
Jamie JohnsonFebruary 5, 2023 at 5:14 pm
Yes, DAVID, I couldn’t agree more about his legacy going on forever! His fashion might not have been functional at all, but it certainly made a lasting impression. And no telling how many impressions those same designs made on the models’ bodies haha! So wonderful to see you on the BBC! Hope they call you back again!! Congrats and cheers, my friend! I’d also really love to hear more about that ghost! xoxoJJ
Clarissa OttoFebruary 5, 2023 at 4:57 pm
Wow, Dave! What an excellent opportunity to appear on BBC news. So happy for you.
Susan T.February 5, 2023 at 12:39 pm
Such a loss! His metal dresses are still amazing today, as seen on the new fragrance bottles. What a talented man.
