Paco Rabanne Promotes Julien Dossena to Creative Director

French designer Julien Dossena has been newly appointed to creative director of Paco Rabanne. The 30-year-old is a graduate of La Cambre in Brussels and had been working as senior designer at Balenciaga since 2008. Joining Paco Rabanne in early 2013, Dossena served under his predecessor Lydia Maurer, assisting in designing this years ready-to-wear collection. Promoted to creative director within months of starting with the company, he is now the third designer in three years to be named as such. While the previous directors only lasted, at most, a few seasons, Paco Rabanne is excited about Dossena. We are delighted to welcome Julien Dossena. His radical and innovative interpretation of the Paco Rabanne style will allow us to firmly establish our collections in the world of the most avant-garde and desirable brands on the market, representatives of the fashion house reported.

With iconic space age looks and a blending of chain metals, plastics and futuristic shapes, the fashion house has made a comeback. After designer Paco Rabanne left in 2006 to pursue other interests, the design house had not made a women’s ready-to-wear line until former creative director, Manish Arora, revived it in 2011. Now with Dossenas help, the brand may see a full recovery back into the international fashion scene. Having won the 1.2.3 prize at the International Festival of Fashion and Photography in Hyres in 2006, he may be the permanent creative director the brand was looking for. His first collection will premiere September 26th during Paris Fashion Week, so we wont have to wait long to find out.

Fashion Designers Launch New Fragrances for Summer

Posted: Jul. 10th, 2012 | Comments 0 | Make a Comment

Come summertime, it’s time to start thinking about switching up your scent. Luckily, many fashion and fragrance houses are introducing new

luxury perfumes

this year, so there’s plenty of time to explore and find a new favorite.

Balenciaga Paris is introducing a new fragrance, Florabotanica, due to hit stores in September. The fashion giant chose actress Kristen Stewart to head the campaign, an unusual choice, as the young lady has apparently never worn perfume. Balenciaga designer Nicolas Ghesquire describes the scent as a combination of “nasty” and “nice” flowers. Ghesquire believes that Stewart is the perfect face for Florabotanica, calling the actress “full of dualities,” according to Women’s Wear Daily. (Photo Courtesy of Balenciaga.)

Taylor Swift is another young Hollywood starlet introducing a new perfume. Come September, Swift’s second collaboration with Elizabeth Arden, Wonderstruck Enchanted, will be added to her repertoire. The follow-up to her Wonderstruck fragrance will be sold in a red glass bottle laden with gold charm. The romantic fragrance is described by Rolling Stone as having “hints of wild berries, passion fruit, peony swirls, ‘sugar-glazed champaca petals,’ white musk, hypnotic vanilla and blond woods.” (Photo Courtesy of Taylor Swift.)

Valentino and Puig are reportedly following up last year’s award-winning fragrance, Valentina, with Valentina Assoluto. With ingredients sourced mainly from Italy, perfumer Olivier Cresp told WWD that the new fragrance is much more nocturnal, more seductive” than the original. The new fragrance includes top notes of Italian bergamot, Smeggia peach from Sicily and white Alba truffle from Piedmont. (Photo Courtesy of Valentino.)

The new fragrance by Diane Von Furstenburg captures the radiance of the sun in a dainty bottle. Sunny DIANE is a fresh take on the brand’s signature fragrance and is a perfect summer accessory. Hints of mandarin, frangipani and driftwood combine to make a crisp, sparkling scent that is perfect for summer. Available from $55.00. (Photo Courtesy of Diane Von Furstenberg.)

Donatella Versace always has something new up her sleeve and WWD attributes a Paris source to a rumor a men’s fragrance called Eros is up next. Apparently the bold diva has already shot the campaign for the scent with art director Giovanni Bianco and photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, however an announcement of the product is still under wraps.
