Paco Rabanne fu rivoluzionario nel mondo della moda degli anni '60, sostituì  ago e filo con pinze e ganci;  tessuti di lana, cotone e seta, a plastica, alluminio e Rhodoid, fondendo tecniche artigianali con prodotti industriali.

Le audaci creazioni di Paco Rabanne si distaccavano dai canoni dell'haute couture avvicinandosi invece ai principi del design industriale, mettendo in evidenza la sua esperienza di creatore di accessori (Givenchy, Dior e Balenciaga).
