9780500287972: Christian Lacroix on Fashion

Christian Lacroix is one of the most inventive and admired fashion designers in the world, and he is also incredibly well-versed in fashion history. He brings that expertise to bear in this imaginary museum of historic and contemporary fashion, telling the story of fashion from the eighteenth century to the present day and illustrating it with examples of his own designs plus historic costumes from the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris.

"This is not a retrospective, but my own look at the costume collections of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, from which I chose pieces from all eras, some never before exhibited. I chose those that were most inspiring, those that best told the story of fashion that I would have wanted to tell if I were the museum curator that I intended to be when I was a student.

"My twenty years in the fashion business are another way of telling this story, and I selected the strongest designs from the haute couture collections of the House of Lacroix between 1987 and 2007, then arranged them according to themes--black and white, color, flowers, ethnic styles, and so forth--and linked them with pieces from the museum collection."--Christian Lacroix

Christian Lacroix is one of the most inventive and admired fashion designers in the world. He is also incredibly well-versed in fashion history, and he brings that expertise to bear in this delighful imaginary museum of historic and contemporary fashion. Each featured piece--whether from the museum's collection or the House of Lacroix--is distinguished by its cut, its detail, its color, and its texture; and the pieces are juxtaposed and photographed in a way that emphasizes their relationships across the centuries.

About the Author:

Christian Lacroix is a world-renowned fashion designer known for his colorful and exuberant drawing style.

Patrick Mauriès is an aficionado of private collections and cabinets of curiosities. He is the author of Cabinets of Curiosities, Fornasetti, and Jewelry by Chanel.

Olivier Saillard is a fashion historian and curator at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris.

From Publishers Weekly:

Published in conjunction with an exhibition at Paris's Musée des Arts Décoratifs, this handsome volume presents a selection of fashions by noted designer Lacroix together with dresses and gowns by great couturiers who have inspired him—Worth, Pasquier, Balmain, Lanvin, Schiaparelli, Dior and others. All the fashions have been chosen by Lacroix from the museum's collection and arranged by theme, such as colors, exotic styles, stripes, spots and sculpted shells. Lacroix introduces each motif with a few words about why it's important to him and discusses influences, such as his childhood in Provence, where he began drawing clothing at an early age, reveled in colors, and drew inspiration from the traditional costumes of Arles. Haute couture should cling tightly to its obsession with the unusual, he states, and that maxim is amply realized in the extraordinary fashions shown from the past and from the House of Lacroix. Saillard, curator at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, and Mauriès (Cabinets of Curiosities) explore the designer's work. The appeal of this beautifully designed book is enhanced by the inclusion of some of Lacroix's colorful sketches. (Apr.)
