Often mixing textiles such as cotton, linen and leather for rock ‘n’ roll inspired ensembles, Cobson’s work was worn by musician Vanessa Paradis who donned a spaghetti-strap gown at the Cannes Film Festival in 1995 while honoring actress Jeanne Moreau with a performance.

The late designer is also known for working in the film industry after creating costumes for Pascale Ogier who starred in Éric Rohmer’s Full Moon in Paris

Rock Your Home by Corrine Cobson (a collection of benches, armchairs, chaise lounges and sofas) was inspired by music, her travels, and the homes of her close friends.
