Christian Lacroix’s irrepressible designs on wallpaper at wallpaperdirect.
Walls à LacroixChristian Lacroix designs for a contemporary fantasy world oozing original luxury, and wallpaperdirect is delighted to be home to four fantastic Lacroix wallpaper collections: Nouveau Mondes, Belle Rives, Carnets Andalous and Air de Paris.
Museum piecesAs a would-be museum curator of fashion, a young Christian Marie Marc Lacroix fell instead into the arms of contemporary fashion in Paris, learning his craft in the luxurious embrace of couture houses like Hermes, Guy Paulin and Jean Patou. In the 1980s dramatic, decadent Lacroix set the style for the world. Lacroix’s own work can now be found in the collections of some of the most important museums in the world, including our own V&A. His stunning colour and drama is inspired by opera, theatre and art. He’s collaborated with the couturier of the Tokyo Imperial Court, and designed for theatrical productions including Madonna’s 2004 Re-invention World tour.
30 years à la modeLacroix’s style is uniquely his own – exuberant, dazzling, colourful and baroque. His use of vivid colour brings equal vibrance and freshness to his wallpapers and fabrics and his couture collections. 2017 will mark 30 years since the creation of the couture house, and Christian Lacroix is to this day relevant, fresh and always à la mode.
