Manish Arora says his new gig as creative director of Paco Rabanne is making him rethink his eponymous line. “Paco Rabanne is making me go all the way, so I’m now trying to make Manish a little more ‘believable,'” the Indian designer explained, noting that he used black, white and skin tones for the first time. But restraint is clearly in the eye of the beholder. From the moment Rossy de Palma opened the show in a holographic silver bustier dress, there was barely a surface that was not laser-printed, sequined, cross-stitched, embroidered or fringed. Arora also unveiled a new line of jeans produced in collaboration with French premium denim brand Notify, in variations ranging from fluorescent dégradés to a psychedelic print. His brand of kitschy exuberance is in a league of its own.
