Christian Lacroix Talks Schiaparelli: Christian Lacroix has opened up about his short-term appointment at Schiaparelli. He explained to Dazed Digital that he feels a definitive kinship with the legendary designer: “I don’t want to sound pretentious but this seems natural to me, almost obvious. I do feel a link with her through many signs since I was a child. In my approach I will for sure not do a caricature of her work, but will create a reflection about how the past and the future are connected in the present.” [Dazed Digital]
