Vintage Authentic Christian Lacroix Charm Pin Brooch from Christian Lacroix 80s/90s runway show worn by model.
Purchased by us personally at Christian Lacroix boutique in Paris
The legendary French designer Christian Lacroix is famous for his bright colors, luxuriance, and perfection, both for his haute couture and ready to wear. His beautiful and unique designs are opulent and colorful with fantasy creations and inspirations from many parts of the world.
Countless celebrities have worn his gorgeous gowns on the red carpets. Here are just a few examples:
• Lady Gaga arrived at the Late Show with David Letterman taping wearing his Fall 2011 Couture jumpsuit, May 2011
• Cate Blanchett named Best Dressed of the Week wearing a vintage Christian Lacroix, 2010

This authentic and lovely Christian Lacroix costume jewelry brooch was purchased by us personally at the Christian Lacroix boutique in Paris. We were told by the sales person that it was worn by model at one of Christian Lacroix's extravagant fashion shows in the late 80s/90s.
We were also told by the sales that Christian Lacroix does not design for his namesake company anymore since it underwent financial restructuring a few years ago. So the new Christian Lacroix accessories are totally different from his vintage signature pieces designed by himself at the height of his fame.
Must-have rare collectible authentic item for Christian Lacroix fans. Very glamorous.
The brooch is in a heart-shape (about 1.5" x 1.6") with fancy patterns all around. There are 3 charms dangling from it. (Please note there will be some sound from the contacts of the 3 charms when wearing) The Christian Lacroix sign is in the middle of the brooch.
In addition, the back of the heart has the authentic Christian Lacroix stamp as shown in photos.
This authentic Christian Lacroix brooch is authentic and unused by us. It is in good condition: there are some minor surface scratches and discoloration.
Heart charm is about 1.75" x slightly bigger than 2".
Please note the listing pictures are of the same authentic Christian Lacroix brooch in different lightings and angles.
The Christian Lacroix boutique did not have the original Christian Lacroix gift box from the 80s/90s for this authentic vintage Christian Lacroix item. However, the sales person gave us the new Christian Lacroix gift box and pouch/dust bag for it which we will include with this beautiful piece.
Please note this is an AUTHENTIC CHRISTIAN LACROIX COSTUME jewelry (vs FINE jewelry) so it is probably just gold-plated. It is not actual gold/solid gold.
With this collectible authentic Christian Lacroix jewelry, you could be a Paris fashion show runway model.
