Paco Rabanne :: Perfume Houses

Paco Rabanne 1 Million and Lady Million adverts

Fashion design house of Paco Rabanne, who was born in Spain and came to France during the Spanish Civil War. His first fashion collection, featuring futuristic designs made of plastic and metal, appeared in 1966; Rabanne subsequently became well known for his chain mail mini dresses, disposable paper clothing and the like. After shuffling through several designers, the fashion house went on hiatus for a time in the late 2000s; it returned in 2011. In 2013, Julien Dossena was named creative director.

Fragrance launches have included include Calandre (1969), Pour Homme (1973), La Nuit (1985), XS (1993), XS Pour Elle (1994), Paco (1996), Energy (1998), Ultraviolet (1999) and Paco Rabanne Pour Elle (2003).

The Paco Rabanne fashion and fragrance businesses are owned by Puig.
