Book Description

28 April 1997
This is fashion designer Christian Lacroix's own account of his life and career. He recalls his childhood in Arles, his "vie de boheme" as a student in Montpellier, his arrival in Paris, and his rise from Patou to his own label within only six years. Hundreds of colour and monochrome illustrations from his sketchpads, diary, pinboard and family albums, are interspersed with vividly remembered impressions that were the sources of his creativity.

4.0 out of 5 stars His Own Impressions 8 Aug 2002
By J. Tillotson - Published on
Fantastic! Christian gives a guided tour of his own work process, and personal advice as a professional designer. It's like reading his diary, or suddenly finding yourself as his closest confidant and assistant designer! He shares his own impressions of himself and his work. He shares details of how his personal life and his career developed - even from childhood- what inspires him, and what are his influences. Four stars because it's not a quick reference: dates, sources, locations not readily found.

5.0 out of 5 stars A collage of souvenirs from a happy man. 14 May 2000
By - Published on
Christian Lacroix brings coulours and light in each page of this book. In fact, this is more than a book; it is a personal gift made by Christian Lacroix to Françoise, his life, to his friends from Arles (where he was born) and to each invividual reader. Many hand-written comments, pink and yellow pages, naive inspiring rural objects. This is a perfect gift for somebody who already owns everything. Fresh, elegant, fashionable.
