Christian Lacroix is one of France's most famous luxury lifestyle and fashion brands. He studied Museum curation at the Sorbonne and at L'Ecole du Louvre. At that time was influenced by 18th century history and art. In 1987 he openend his own haute couture house partnership with Mr. Arnault and in 1989 openend boutiques in Paris, Japan, London and Geneva.
At a time when fashion was focused on simplicity, Christian Lacroix chose mix and match. When black became the standard, he opted for blood red, fuchsia pink and bright yellow.
With each new collection, Christian Lacroix designed pieces that combined unique materials and colours, adorning looks with luxurious baroque touches. He brought back folklore, history and theatre, infusing them with elegance, sophistication and craftmanship.
His un-mistakable style of mixed, vibrant colour patterns, experimental fabrics and historical references are still the core creative thread running through the brands designs and it's continuously evolving contemporary style.
