Paco Rabanne Poised for Runway Comeback?

>> The future of Bill Blass doesn't look so good, but another troubled house may be on the rise: Paco Rabanne.  

The label's ready-to-wear line was closed in 2006, leaving designer Patrick Robinson to take his current position as executive vice president of design for Gap.  Now, Rabanne owners Puig have just appointed a new vice president who is looking into following what Gibo is doing to resuscitate Rochas — licensing out the ready-to-wear.

The plan isn't runway-ready just yet — the new strategy is expected to be under review for up to four months — but Paco Rabanne fragrances have been taking off recently, and expanding into fashion seems the next logical step.  Paolo Melim Andersson, with his love of disk shapes and graphic designs, could be the right man for the job.
