French-Spanish fashion designer Paco Rabanne was cremated in Brittany

A discreet tribute to an eccentric artist. The Spanish fashion designer Paco Rabanne, who died Friday in Brittany, where he lived, was cremated there on Monday, we learned on Tuesday from the Catalan group Puig, which owns the brand bearing his name. “He was cremated yesterday (Monday) in Brittany,” said an official without further details.

Famous for his futuristic metal outfits, as well as his eccentric statements, the creator died on Friday at the age of 88 in the village of Portsall. His family had taken refuge in France because of the Spanish Civil War.

The designer’s house, located in Ploudalmézeau (Finistère) was robbed in the night from Saturday to Sunday. “The thieves thought there was a lot of valuables in there. It is not a glorious act. Whether it’s Paco Rabanne or anyone, it’s very shocking to steal from someone who has just died,” said Marguerite Lamour, mayor of the town.

Cardi B tribute

The Paco Rabanne house will parade on March 1 as part of Paris Fashion Week, an opportunity to pay tribute to the couturier, buried in the strictest privacy.

A few days after the disappearance of the “fashion metallurgist”, the American rapper Cardi B was dressed in Paco Rabanne for the Grammy Awards on Sunday.

The singer wore a metallic dress associated with a head jewel, designed by the current artistic director of the house, Julien Dossena, a reinterpretation of the emblematic creations of Paco Rabanne.
