Paperback with flaps, 200 illustrations, 200 in colour. This is not a retrospective, but my own look at the costume collections of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs ... I chose those that were most inspiring, those that best told the story of fashion that I would have wanted to tell if I were the museum curator that I intended to be when I was a student ...’ – Christian Lacroix Christian Lacroix is one of the most inventive and admired fashion designers in the world. He is also incredibly well-versed in fashion history, and he brings that expertise to bear in this delightful imaginary museum of historic and contemporary fashion. Each featured piece – whether from the museum’s collection or the House of Lacroix – is distinguished by its cut, its detail, its colour and its texture; and the pieces are juxtaposed and photographed in a way that emphasizes their relationships across the centuries. Fashion is a fascinating story that never ends, and Christian Lacroix is the most seductive of storytellers.
