Maserati and Paco Rabanne come together

PARIS: An exhibition opened here last week, bringing together two brands that are synonymous with haute-couture - Maserati and Paco Rabannne.

The two companies have worked together since the 1960s. Paco Rabanne designed in the ‘60s a limited ready-to-wear collection named “rob’auto”, especially developed as a driving apparel line.

Moreover, the first female perfume created by Paco Rabanne was called Calandre (1969), which alludes to the front grille of the Maserati.

Among the socialites and media personalities at the event were Italian actress and ‘Casino Royale’ Bond Girl Caterina Murino and Hollywood actress Tara Reid.

Guests were greeted by the sight of the Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale and a GranTurismo MC Trofeo Race Car at the entrance.

Models dressed in Paco Rabanne attire, including the one made with aluminium discs worn by Audrey Hepburn in “Two for the road” (1967) posed alongside the Maserati range, which included the GranCabrio, the Quattroporte Sport GT S Awards Edition, the GranTurismo S MC Sport Line and a 300 S (1955), one of Maserati’s most iconic race cars.

The exhibition at Motor Village, Fiat's showroom on the Champs Elysees, is open to the public until Nov 28.
