Lacroix : a drawing, a dance, an enchantment…

You certainly already know that Christian Lacroix is a fantastic stylist who offers an evasion in warm atmospheres with shimmering colors. His creations are particularly influenced by Spain, between toreador and flamenco … a Carmen‘s dream… but also by folklore.

But here, I will not speak about fashion shows or ready-to-wear… but about a more singular contribution to fashion : the theater and ballet costumes (especially for the Opera of Paris).

He already worked, for example, for a staging of Molière.

In fall 2011, he also worked, in cooperation with Swarovski, for the ballet “La source“,  composed by Arthur Saint-Léon on the music of Léon Minkus and Léo Delibes : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7J4-dCH8u4I&feature=fvwrel

A great creation…

As an invitation to spectacle…

As an invitation to dance…

Out of time …

Eternal…

Luxury …

For everyone.

You can see more about those creations on the website of the national center of scene costumes in Moulins :
