Lacroix Loves scHi­a­Par­eLLi

Harper's Bazaar (India) - - THE STYLE - Chris­tine Whit­ney

It’s two ma­jor come­backs in one at Schi­a­par­elli—the his­toric Paris house has brought the leg­endary de­signer Chris­tian Lacroix on board to cre­ate a col­lec­tion for its re­launch dur­ing the Paris haute couture shows this month. (Lacroix showed his last col­lec­tion four years ago while Schi­a­par­elli has been on a hiatus since the 1950s.) Col­lab­o­ra­tion is in the Schi­a­par­elli DNA (founder Elsa fa­mously worked with Jean Cocteau, Sal­vador Dalí et al.), and the reimag­ined label will fea­ture new guest de­sign­ers ev­ery year, with Lacroix as the big kick­off and the epic model Farida Khelfa as the house ambassador.
