Please Design Forever

Christian Lacroix is hands-down my favorite designer. One of his collections with its vibrant hues was what hooked me on Haute couture and runway in the very beginning. I recently discovered that he opened his couture house the same year I was born...clearly this was fate. I like his consist use of bright color, multi-faceted and ornate clothes and how he mixes inspiration from all over the world. His latested collection, pictures via Style.

That polka dot dress turns me on a little, I'm not gonna lie.

Carlotta said...

He's one of my favourite Haute Couture designers too (even if I think he sells too many plates and sheets..)
He used to be my first favorite when I was a child, maybe because his drawings are so amazing... being a drawer too, if you haven't seen them yet, you should certainly appreciate!

Of course it was fate :)
His designs are so fun! I love the first picture.

Tahda said...

amazingness! I do love Lacroix.


Lacroix always reminds me of Ab Fab (british tv show) though because Eddie one of the main charters goes through a Lacroix obsession in the first season and wears some crazy numbers.

"it's a Lacroix, sweetie"

KD said...

Every picture is fabulous, and I love how the man himself dresses!

I love his use of colour.

the floral one with all those pastels is divine, it looks like one of those little russian eggs

Eri said...

Patsy from Absolute Fabulous - great british sitcom a few yrs old now- She would say:
"Lacroix, sweetie, Lacroix".

What beautiful colors! I will never get over the bubble skirt. Never. It will never be out of style to me.

fash said...

i love that he puts carnations on the seats of his shows so that people throw them at him. and i love the absolutely fabulous connection even more!

fashionaddict said...

wouldn't i love to see you get your hands on some lacroix and mix it up. i'm sure you'd look great. lacroix isn't my style and i love looking at his work, especially the couture.

KATLIN said...

I love his work too! Have you checked out his website? You can see a lot of his drawings and they're amazing =)

Ambroisine said...

He's a great designer ! I love the mix of colours..The picture with all the bangles is gorgeous !

Brittany Noel said...

I love the flow of his work. Each dress has a life of its own and looks like it could just move right off the model! That would be scandalous, though.

Couture Carrie said...

Lacroix is the Master! Loved this collection - in fact, I included that first frock in my post today!
