A look inside the Rabanne H&M collection and how to style the pieces

The Rabanne H&M collaboration fuses futuristic design with innovative craftsmanship. Drawing on the iconic 1960s creations of the house’s late founder Paco Rabanne, re-energised by creative director Julien Dossena since 2013, the Rabanne H&M collection takes revolutionary, dancefloor-destined style to a new dimension.

Spanning womenswear, menswear, accessories as well as a home décor capsule, the collection blends iconic chainmail and glittering sequins with easy sportswear and slick tailoring.

Key pieces for women include archival-inspired metallic mesh skirts and mirrored paillette dresses, alongside leopard-print jersey dresses.

For men, sequined turtlenecks turn heads alongside luxe loungewear. In accessories, contemporary takes on Rabanne’s iconic paillette and metallic mesh jewellery steal the spotlight, along with sequined pool-slides.

Meanwhile the H&M Home capsule combines statement-making metallic furniture with sculptural accessories.

The collection has been crafted in long-lasting, high-quality fabrics with premium qualities of wool appearing in accessories, outerwear and knitwear. In a first for both H&M and Rabanne, the house’s iconic metallic mesh pieces feature both recycled and conventional metal, the result of months of development. Embellished items feature recycled PET sequins and recycled-glass rhinestones.

As part of the anticipated collaboration with Rabanne, H&M is also presenting a captivating short film directed by the award-winning filmmaker Xavier Dolan, who worked closely with Rabanne’s Julien Dossena. The film showcases the cutting-edge collection in an epic, Sci-Fi-infused setting defined by a dance-all-night party atmosphere. Starring a collective of top models, including Anok Yai and Noma

Han, as well as the model and actor Rianne Van Rompaey, the TikTok star Vinnie Hacker and the actor Issa Perica, the film encapsulates the high-energy spirit of the collection.

“A dramatic collection calls for a breath-taking showcase, so it’s very exciting to bring Xavier Dolan’s inimitable eye to our Rabanne H&M collaboration with a short film that is truly spectacular,” says Ann-Sofie Johansson, head of design womenswear and creative advisor at H&M.
