Naturally, I’m listening to Françoise Hardy as I type this. Le Temps De L’ Amour, (The Time of Love in English) which remains one of my favourite songs by Françoise.
The French singer was the biggest inspiration for Paco Rabanne’s latest collection at Paris Fashion Week. I noticed it straight away – the leather jacket, the jersey and skirt combinations, the metallic jumpsuit, minidresses and suits.
In my Françoise Hardy archives, (I think I have mentioned before that I have a somewhat large collection of photographs of her. I am a freak, I know.) I sourced some photographs of her wearing actual Paco Rabanne from back in the day (the metallic jumpsuit in the first photograph), as well as some outfits that I thought looked similar to the pieces in the collection.
