Drum roll: H&M has tapped fashion house Rabanne for its latest designer collaboration, and it’s very, very good.

Known for the glitzy ‘60s-era aesthetic introduced by the brand’s late founder Paco Rabanne, the luxury fashion house has been a mainstay in the high fashion world since its inception. And for the past decade, creative director Julien Dossena has continued to elevate the brand’s DNA.

“As a designer, I’ve always been interested in exploring hedonism and empowerment. I was very enthusiastic to work with H&M on a collection that will introduce Rabanne’s avant-garde energy to a wider audience in a democratic way,“ Dossena said in a press release.

“Rabanne’s metallic dresses are instantly-recognizable pieces of fashion history,” says Ann-Sofie Johansson, head of womenswear design and creative advisor at H&M. “We’re thrilled to bring a dazzling array of Rabanne designs to our customers with this sensational collaboration.”

The collection’s signature metallic-mesh pieces are created from a mix of recycled and conventional metal, the result of months of research and development on the part of both brands. Some of the pieces, meticulously assembled from handmade hooks, were produced in small-batch, limited quantities. If you want to get your hands on them, Johansson has two words of advice: “Hurry up!”

In addition to apparel, shoes and accessories, the Rabanne H&M collection also includes a fabulous H&M Home interior design capsule.

And in true Rabanne fashion, the Rabanne H&M collaboration was unveiled at the glitzy Club Silencio in Paris, where VIP guests—including ELLE Canada—discovered the dazzling collection ahead of its official launch in selected stores and online at hm.com as of 10:00 AM on November 9, 2023.
