Lacroix for Schiaparelli

 I was sooo excited today when I saw the name Christian Lacroix come across my computer screen today. I have always been a huge fan of couture but I have never and probably will never be able to afford the delicate pieces that float down the runways of Paris. But a girl can dream and that is what Lacroix did for me, he let me dream.

Christian Lacroix

His clothes were the princess pieces you always wanted to walk into a room in and cause a stir. When his company defused in 2009 its was a sad day for couture. One of the legends had moved on, Lacroix now still designs but for the performing arts. He still resides in France designing for operas and ballets.

However this July, Lacroix pulls out his sketch pad one more time for Elsa Schiaparelli.  In celebration for the revival of the house of Schiaparelli he will do a 15 piece collection that will be shown during the Paris Haute Couture shows.

It's not a runway show but an exhibition for all to enjoy. When asked if Lacroix would return back to his fashion house he didn't say yes but he also didn't say no.

Even though he's comfortable where he is now you never know how this project will affect him.

Take a look back at some of Lacroix's best pieces - in my opinion :)
