Christian Lacroix Takes the Train

After offering a new design to the Mediterranean TGV, the great couturier recurrence and this time it is the trains to eastern France that will benefit from his favors. The trains are not the only ones to be revamped, uniforms shipboard personnel are also brought up to date…

This unique event is an opportunity to do a little zoom on the journey of this great designer, unusual and far from the Parisian microcosm. Indeed, the understanding of Christian Lacroix, its typical Provencal taste for pink and bright red, his kaleidoscopic vision luxurious embroidery, sequins and pearls and its new and bold silhouettes set it apart as an original in itself.

Born in 1951 in Arles, Lacroix grew up immersed in the Southern culture of France: Costume bullfighting and gypsy traditions have always inspired his highly decorative style. In 1973, Christian Lacroix moved to Paris to study at the Sorbonne and the École du Louvre to become curator. The same year, he met his future wife, Francoise, who persuades him to abandon the dusty museums in favor of fashion design.

Hermes is the first house to hire in 1978, then in 1980 he went to work at Guy Paulin. A year later, Christian Lacroix touch for the first time in high fashion by designing for Jean Patou. It gives life to this art was said by producing moribund, season after season, a fantastic and opulent fashion. In the mid 80s, he suddenly found success.

In 1986, his collection of cocktail dresses “ball” propelled him to the rank of international fame and earned him the prestigious Golden Thimble high fashion. In 1987, Bernard Arnault founded the fashion house Christian Lacroix, the first to open its doors since that of Yves Saint Laurent in 1962.

Lacroix is ​​one of the most sought clutches of the time, exerting a tremendous influence on the fashion of the 1980s: there are many who believe that clothes convey a certain decadence, symbolizing the decade, not only in terms of fashion but also the history of the company.
He launched a line of ready-to-wear in 1987. In 2002 he was appointed artistic director of the house Pucci (Matthew Williamson succeeded him in 2006). Christian Lacroix is prolific, he created the costumes for several great plays with Carmen, he revamps Air France uniforms, the TGV Atlantique, completely redone the decor of the hotel in Paris’ little mill “cleverly mixing Jouy and contemporary design.

These words perfectly illustrate his concept of aesthetics in broad sense and desire to create for all and for all. “Fashion and lifestyle for me, it’s the same. Still staging, directing, dramatization in our image of each of everyday gestures: traveling, sleeping, dressing, meditate, have fun, to play its role as socially and aesthetically, the most current as possible.”
