Paco Rabanne was a world famous designer of clothing and perfumes.
I had a cousin who I saw only at Christmas who exclusively wore Paco Rabanne colone for his entire adult life (thus far). I remember after the pandemic when we returned to family gatherings immediately noting that his scent was something I didn’t realize I desperately missed while celebrating in quarentine.
His death was announced on Instagram
“The House of Paco Rabanne wishes to honor our visionary designer and founder who passed away today at the age of 88,” the message read. “Among the most seminal fashion figures of the 20th century, his legacy will remain a constant source of inspiration.”
It added: “We are grateful to Monsieur Rabanne for establishing our avant-garde heritage and defining a future of limitless possibilities.”
