In the 60’s, Rabanne’s metal couture (gloriously modeled by Audrey Hepburn in her film Two for the Road) and his costumes for space babe Barabarella in 1968 cemented his status as fashion’s eccentric maverick. By 1976 however, he “became associated with male toiletries rather than for the intriguing experimentation he had been carrying out.” Still, in a decade of hippie chic and relaxed sportswear, Rabanne’s metalwork more or less found a relevant incarnation after the Space Age craze died out.
