The legend is reborn. French fashion house Paco Rabanne has introduced the new re-edition of the spectacular handbag called Le 69, which was originally designed in 1969 by this famous futurist fashion designer. Rabanne is responsible for the wide developing of the space-age futurist fashion style in 1960s and 1970, how we wrote about it in our special Future blog some months ago.
With his recent re-edition of the metallic handbag, which was originally made out of the industrial metal plates and flush handle chain, the timeless futurist fashion obsession is alive again. Now produced in nine different updated versions with new different materials including rubber, leather or natural horn, the bag is more contemporary than you think. In context of the contemporary fashion experiments, Le 69 is really nice 1960s predecessor. Two versions from acrylic and aluminum were created exclusively for Japanese label Comme des Garçons. All of them are hand made in French ateliers.
