It’s Lacroix for Desigual – Sweetie

Hey All,

Here’s a first look at the latest ‘high street’ X designer collaboration. Over the last year, on line retailer Desigual has been working with Monsieur Lacroix. (Since becoming bankrupt in 2009 Lacroix is no longer allowed to design under his full name, and so Christian Lacroix is now, Monsieur Lacroix).

The A/W11 collection, due to drop on Monday, July 11th, is a prefect collaboration of two like minded fashion houses. Bright clashing colours and prints are the trademark of both Lacroix and Desigual. The collection is very Lacroix in its use of brash prints and quirky elements – see mouse-ear hats. The price tag however is very Desigual, as is its mainstream colour palette.

So the result of a years hard work? Below is a sneak peek of three outfits and some sketches that represent what else we should expect to see from the collaboration.

Man, I love designer sketches, it gives such incredible insight into the creative design process.


Whisty Xx

    It actually looks rather good. Lacroix’s a genius…. the sweetbox couture collections, what a loss. I would very much like that grey coat to be mine. xx
