The owner of this 1/1 NFT will not only be invited as a VIP guest to a Paco Rabanne show, but will also be invited to the Paco Rabanne atelier in Paris, to have a custom physical version of the archive piece made-to-measure. Construction of the piece will require over 220 hours of painstaking work by the atelier team who will need to assemble 5000 paillettes with 10,500 metal rings using the actual mould from the original design
The Metallic Samurai Suit was the opening look of the Fall-Winter 90/91 show and saw Rabanne’s return to working with his signature ‘unwearable’ metal – his fondness of which had lead to Coco Chanel nicknaming him “the metallurgist of fashion”
Inspired by samurai uniforms, this armour-like suit consists of metallic squares reminiscent of those on butchers’ aprons, which were pieced together using wire, glue and hammers. The way he broke tradition with conventional methods of dressmaking was in line with the way he broke social norms by speaking out for female liberation:
“In France, during the ’60s women emerged to be warriors because they needed to affirm their desire of emancipation, freedom, and liberty. The armor was almost necessary.”
