About the Christian Lacroix 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.
Collection Spring/ Summer 2013
In honor of the brand's 20 years anniversary, Lacroix celebrates its famous prints. The traditional silk scarfs are available in either pastel or bright colors and are partly provided with geometric motives. All in all, the current collection can be called the “come back” of the Lacroix prints and contains perfect winter accessories that celebrate the anniversary of the fashion house in style.
The Lacroix scarfs are both elegant and smart and the new must-haves !
