"A woman should mix fake and real. To ask a woman to wear real jewelry only is like asking her to cover herself with real flowers instead of flowery silk prints. She'd look faded in a few hours. I love fakes because I find such jewelry provocative, and I find it disgraceful to walk around with millions around your neck just because you're rich. but to adorn her; not the same thing." Coco Chanel (Madsen, pg. 197)
Mediterranean, curious, contemporary: Christian Lacroix is a man firmly entrenched in his era, who views the past with tenderness and admiration, fully devours the present and imagines the future with a kaleidoscopic spirit. Highly influenced by contemporary art, today Christian Lacroix designs his creations using a more graphic and pure style. His Haute Couture is a perpetual creation, an explosion of colors, the chance to be fully free in his designs and to create totally unique pieces. Hand-Weaving, crossing and combining colors are the key words that best describe these collections. The inspiration for his clothing is drawn from numerous provencial, ethnic and baroque styles, portraying newly found femininity and intimate luxury. He loves to mix and match all different styles and fabrics. His ready-To-wear lines are vivacious, created in emblematic colors.
With each new collection, Lacroix creates accessories that reflect the season's designs. Leather goods, jewelry, glasses, scarves and shoes are all essential elements that must not be dissociated from the clothing. His jewelry, floral or abstract, is the inspiration of his fantasies. His shoes offer the finishing touch for women's legs, lengthening them, with their frequent high heels. Playful and vivacious, his handbags twirl around the feminine silhouette. He is now also working with precious metals and jewels
