Christian Lacroix For Schiaparelli Collection

1400
By Eloise Alba Paris Couture Week — Legendary designer Christian Lacroix unveiled his 15-piece collection for illustrious fashion house Schiaparelli. Like the Surrealist-inspired designs of Schiaparelli's early years, much of the pieces in the Lacroix collaboration were visual artworks—imaginative and contemporary.

Faceless mannequins in the Les Arts Décoratifs Museum showcased a somewhat restrained opulence, paying tribute to two very different sides of the label's founder. "I wanted to approach the project as naturally as possible—Listening to Schiaplanguage and heritage, plus my feeling of her work - I mean not only the crazy baroque, opulent, extravagant, caricatural side of her clothes, but her modernity, simplicity and purity too," shared Lacroix.

The sartorial tribute celebrated the best of both worlds—eccentric yet elegant, modern yet timeless, exorbitant with a keen sensibility—very relevant for today and tomorrow. Check out the making of Lacroix's Schiaparelli collection here.
