The house of Christian Lacroix, renowned for its dramatic costume-like fashion creations and intricate detailing, is returning to the world of women’s fashion with a lingerie and beachwear collection.
In partnership with lingerie company Palmers Lejaby, SS12 will see the launch of a new collection, described as characteristically ‘Lacroix – diverse and opposing; bold yet reserved, romantic but adventurous’.
The range includes Mantille, a group focussing on Chantilly lace veiled by lightweight tulle, Paseo, a collection of clean lines and iconic shapes inspires by the Torero’s cape and Boduc, a set featuring Vichy checked fabrics.
For beachwear, the brand is introducing Riviera, comprising classic, vintage pin-up styles.
Swimwear lines Monte Carlo, Chiffre, Casino and Lucky complete the collection.
The new range will be exhibited at Moda, this August.
