Christian Lacroix eclecticism is always interesting to watch. I may not agree with his choices, I may as well love them, Christian Lacroix is to me an artisan of fabric, colors and influences.
This new Couture collection is no exception either. I sometimes take every collection (especially the Haute Couture ones) as a movie and the clothes should make the characters, accompanying them in continuous evolution. (don’t miss the rest of the pictures and videos from Christian Lacroix Haute Couture Spring 2009 collection right after the jump!)
Christian Lacroix is more like few movies in one since his designer eccentricity allows him to mix and match so many different inspirations (and stylishly get away with it!). It’s a Pirates movie!
The exotic materials, the flower prints (that I remember from old tapisseries) as well as the golden details make me dream about Gypsy caravans and Renaissance luxury. I picked up some of the models, but you can see the entire collection here.
The strict hair updos with colored finish, the huge hoop earrings, the multi layered jewelry, it’s all a game. The Christian Lacroix pirates fashion game. Would you play this Summer 2009 Haute Couture season with Christian Lacroix?
