PARIS: Leading fashion designer Paco Rabanne died at the age of 88.

The news of the death of this Spanish-born fashion legend was confirmed by a spokesperson for the Puig group that controls the Paco Rabanne brand.

“An important personality in fashion, he presents a bold, revolutionary and provocative vision, delivered through a unique aesthetic,” said Puig Chairman and CEO Marc Puig.

The fashion icon known for his signature metallic hues and 1960s space-age designs died in Portsall, Brittany.

Paco Rabanne, or real name Francisco Rabaneda y Cuervo, was born in a village in the Basque region in 1934.

Rabanne grew up in France and majored in architecture at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris.

She began her career by sketching luxury handbags and shoes, before branching out into fashion.

Rabanne designs clothing and jewelry with unconventional materials such as metal and plastic.

His first collection, which he described as “unwearable clothing made from contemporary materials”, was made of plastic strips linked with metal loops, and was worn by barefoot models at shows in luxury Parisian hotels.

Rabanne collaborated with the Puig family in the late 1960s, launching a perfume collection that became a springboard for the company’s international expansion.
