About the Brand
Christian Lacroix’s career in fashion begins in 1978 after finishing his studies in history of art. Before joining Jean Patou in 1981, he works as an assistant for Guy Paulin at Hermès . He is respected for his exceptional designs that are inspired by the beautiful landscapes of the Provence, Venice, Spain and also by fairy tales. 1987, supported by the company LVMH, Lacroix founds his own fashion house. His first haute couture fashion show is based on Camargue and on Arles. He also becomes art director of the couture house Florentine Emilio Pucci. Until today this fashion house is known for its creativity and elegance.
Lacroix has recently introduced its brand-new autumn/winter collection 2012. The collection has been designed under the creative direction of Sacha Walckhoff, designer of the fashion house since 2012 and right-hand man of Christian Lacroix for almost 10 years. Sacha Walckhoff is a real free spirit and insists on keeping the identity of the brand that is one of haute couture’s key figures. The designer also reinvents the famous Lacroix scarfs by adding color and style.
Spring/Summer 2015 Collection
This spring-summer 2015 is no exception to the rule: Christian Lacroix, through its rich range of silk scarves, takes us on a journey. The first stop of this creative journey is in Latin America, particularly in Brazil with patterns from Curitiba, Rio Couture and Samba. Then towards Africa: Christian Lacroix honours the capital of Benin, Cotonou. The subject of this journey ends on the continent: a new print, Tiger World, is the link between the feline theme of fashion and animal stripes, perfectly into the wild trend of the season. Finally, the emblematic Toro Arty square, Figurine and Sketch are reworked in chromatic and punchy styles.
