Christian Lacroix

Scarves Collection

First, imagine a Big Bang. An original explosion, from which galaxies of impeccably cut, fitted creations would result. The starting point, the alpha of this collection of scarves, designed by House of Christian Lacroix.

Picture yourself in the workshop for a moment. A secret lair, creating the alchemy that comes up with tomorrow´s silhouettes, going from sketch to model, from pencil line to drapery. A place where colours and ideas collide until a shape, a story is born.

Our story begins in the gardens of a palace, suspended in the meanderings of a time that strings them all together. In this ideal setting, under the soft, silvery light of the moon, an elegant beauty gathers the most beautiful flowers, along with a few choice pieces of fruit. But her spirit, dreaming of exotic plants from distant lands, slips away beyond the gates of the garden of Eden.

Seeking escape, she decorates the palace that continues to detain her with a thousand and one beautiful marvels. Trying damask, brocade, one after another. Pink or blue? Silver or gold? It matters little, as tonight, once again, she will be the most beautiful. The décor is ready, pilasters have been replaced with palm trees. Tonight´s pirates and mermaids spin dizzily around. The elegant masked lady surreptitiously catches his eye. It is he who is in love of her life. Everything tells him so.

It has become an obsession: finding the pirate who pierced her heart with a divinely poisoned arrow. She is reassured. The anemone sent by Cupid is proof enough. He feels the same. The lovers are united, before our story separates them once again. with the duties that only heroes will fulfil.

As she waits for what seems like forever, our elegant beauty gathers together pieces of cloth, like enigmatic symbols designed as messages of love. Spring returns, restoring her hope. The lovers are reunited, celebrating love and freedom together.

At last, in the limelight, on the stage. The models parade up and down, decked out in the scarves, designed like fairy tales to be told. Each one paying tribute to the elegant beauty lying dormant within every woman. The ultimate accessory. The omega. A delicate caress at the hollow of the neck, a shared beauty, signed by Lacroix.
