Nudes Curated By Julien Dossena- Photographed By Coco Capitan
Publisher Paco Rabanne
In 1969, photographer Jean Clemmer immortalised his creative partnership with fashion designer Paco Rabanne in a daring monograph of glamorous female nudes strategically covered by sculptural garments made of plastic, synthetic fibres, and metal. It epitomised an era of sexual liberation and female empowerment. French designer Julien Dossena has worked towards a contemporary vision of femininity for the Paco Rabanne fashion house since 2013, most recently by commissioning Spanish photographer Coco Capitán to revisit Clemmer’s images in a new portfolio shot on the grounds of the 1920s Villa Noailles. Poems by Capitán accompany the sensual and bold images.
