Paris, Day 6 - Christian Lacroix

Inspiration: polkadots and satin
Images: style.com

In the first three seasons of Absolutely Fabulous, Edina Monsoon always exclaimed, "It's Lacroix, sweetie. LACROIX!" in defense of her unflattering, kaleidoscopic outfits. What was true 10 years ago is still true today. Even Eddy has since defected to Burberry and Dior. As you can see, Lacroix is as flamboyant as ever. Look at the laces on those heels an the bold use of polkadots! Nonetheless, I like the men's bags, tennis shoes, and the few examples of women's wear that did not involve polkadots or overwheming layers of satin. As with most shows, you can always find a piece or two worth having, if you can look beyond the styling of the models.
