Christian Lacroix Leads Elsa Schiaparelli Re-Launch

Christian Lacroix has been selected to produce the first range of garments for the soon-to-be-relaunched house of Schiaparelli, NY Mag has revealed. The Italian fashiona magnate Diego Della Valle purchased the trademarks and archives for Elsa Schiaperelli’s brand back in 2006 and in a press release, has finally detailed his strategy for the fashion house.

Commenting on Schiaparelli’s work, Lacroix commented “In this persona incarnating a true aristocrat, one finds a spirit where mathematics and literature as well as poetry coexist: Elsa is a sacred sphinge who never ceases to interrogate us while offering us new enigmas as answers. Art, theater and cinema ... my wish is to reposition Elsa at the center of her maison and on the stage from which she once seduced the world.” Lacroix will produce the first garments made under the Schiaparelli’s name for almost 60 years and they will likely be on show during Paris Couture Week in July.

After his own homage, Lacroix will then hand over the mantle to “a long series of different artist contributions” which will take place “in succession at the Schiaparelli Maison” and added that “the maison will also develop collections by the future artistic director of the Schiaparelli maison.” Lacroix’s 15 piece collection will be presented at 21 place Vendôme, Elsa’s former headquarters.
