I wonder if it is just a matter with updating, but Paco Rabanne is still on the Paris show calender.

Rabanne, Rochas... gone, while Jennifer Lopez and Kimora Lee Simmons continue to sell and be popular.
Don't shoot me for saying this because I also don't respect celebrity lines but the reason they continue to sell is because they are affordable and a lot of times Lopez and Simmons re-create the looks of higher end labels. But it's reality, Rochas was way too expensive even with the amazing construction of their clothing.

This isn't as much of a loss to me as Rochas was. While in retrospect Rochas' closing seemed to make some sense, this is no surprise AT ALL. I've almost been waiting for the announcement. Robinson's appointment already seemed odd, I remember many comments about how ill fitted the pairing was. His collections did get better over time but were never outstanding. If Rochas had the issues they had even with Theysken's praise, I don't know if Robinson's mediocre collections stood any chance. I'd see some of the clothes occasionally in Vogue or Elle and it always seemed hopeless.

That said I'm dissapointed because he was getting better with every season. But the label should have ended with Rabanne's retirement. Rosemary Rodriguez designed for the house and kept much in the same line with what Rabanne had done. They hired Robinson, I think, to give the label a whole new look and new market potential. It didn't work. I hope he finds a label that fits him. I could totally have seen him at Celine. Too bad.

more on this from wwd...i guess patrick robinson is still the house's designer...

Paco Rabanne is in flux — but not out of fashion.

The Paris-based house, owned by Spain's Puig Group, has informed retailers it will not ship its fall-winter collection while it restructures, market sources said.

It is understood that the house aims to wind down its high-cost Paris operations, which involve some 40 employees, but will not exit the apparel business. Rabanne is said to be considering several options, including a manufacturing partnership and a possible repositioning of its designer line.

Patrick Robinson, an Ameri*can designer brought in to reenergize the house in 2004, is still working at Puig's 26th Street offices in Manhattan and is expected to remain at the design helm.

Mario Grauso, president of Puig Fashion Group, could not be reached for comment on Thursday. It is understood that Rabanne's fragrance business is not affected by the changes.
