Christian Lacroix interprets Schiaparelli
After four years away from the haute couture, Christian Lacroix will return to present an 18-look special collection for Schiaparelli. In charge of the initial stage of the revival of this long dormant brand, Lacroix has combined Schiaparelli’s aesthetic with his own signature flair for drama and opulence.
Although this arrangement will only be a one-off (and the brand does not intend to produce or sell the clothes), it brings the brand back into the public eye (not seen since 1954), and heightens the anticipation for the results for their search for a creative director.
Below is a video interview by Suzie Menkes of the NY Times with Christian Lacroix as he discusses his collection for Schiaparelli.
