CHRISTIAN LACROIX

French Costume Genius
Christian Lacroix has become famous for his bright colors, luxuriance and perfection, sometimes well beyond the commercial boundaries of his contemporaries and critics.

With stints at Hermès, Emilio Pucci and Jean Patou, over 20 years of Haute Couture on the catwalk, and a strong pedigree in costume design, he is perhaps one of the most influential designers of our times. He quotes widely from fashion history (the corset and the crinoline), from folklore, and from many parts of the world. Favouring the hot colors of the Mediterranean, he often mixes patterns and fabrics, sometimes handwoven in local workshops.

To own just a piece of his work is to experience a hint of fashion genius.
