Paco Rabanne...Those were the days...

It's clear that the main focus or "star" of this photo is the Paco Rabanne dress worn by the model, however I posted this photograph because it shows a scene of a night party circa 1966-1967. Looking at it just makes me realize how party/dress etiquette has gradually been disappearing throughout the decades...a point and thought I've read on many blogs. Unfortunately it has been a massive loss, however there are still some that know how to dress well according to the ocassion...some kind of rare "species". And although Paco Rabanne's designs were mainly for women, his 60s dresses and clothing made out of plastic and metal helped him earn an iconic place in this decade's fashion.

Hector: Gracias por tus comentarios! Creo que si estaría bien un día de estos hacer un post dedicado a la moda femenina de los 60s.

Vanessa: Ya creo que en persona ha de ser impresionante ese vestido sobre todo porque más que una prenda es una obra artesanal. Paco Rabanne fue un genio en esos años!
