Legendary '60s designer Paco Rabanne may be known for creating a dozen unwearable dresses and outfitting French bombshells, but his modern-day designs are quite suitable for the sidewalk. Now helmed by Julien Dossena (who may or may not be Balenciaga-bound), the Spain-born, France-bred talent's eponymous label is ramping up its global retail efforts with a potential store in LA, reports WWD.
Following its new boutique in Paris, the luxury fashion house is set to open a second shop in London this year and "already has its sights set on a unit in America, likely in Los Angeles," notes the fashion trade pub. No word yet on where or when Rabanne's first Stateside outpost is landing; stay tuned for more.
