Lacroix gets a Rixo remix
Vintage-inspired British brand Rixo is collaborating with the iconic House of Christian Lacroix on a capsule of 19 limited-edition pieces. The bold looks — including dresses, mini skirts and separates — blend baroque details and iconic prints from the Lacroix archives with Rixo’s vibrant silhou- ettes and knack for pattern mixing. In a nod to sustainability, only 50 versions of each playful design will be produced. As Patty and Edina would say . . . absolutely fabulous.
