So the first time I heard the term Lacroix, was watching the British sitcom Absolutely Fabulous, written by Jeniffer Saunders. The classic quote "It's Lacroix sweetie, Lacroix!"
The brand was so influential to the series, that he himself, Christian Marie Marc Lacroix, featured in numerous episodes.
Born in 1951 in the southern french town of Arles, Christian developed his love for fashion in the 60s and 70s, from the styles that passed through those decades, it is easy to see why.
1987 saw the launch of his haute couture range and it was in 1989 when he branched out with eyewear and other accessories such as handbags and jewellery.
The Christian Lacroix vintage eyewear collection definitely makes it into my top 5 brands.
Just like the clothes, they are lavish, bold, and colourful. These exciting and incredibly rare frames, showcase an intricate fusion of patterns, exquisite metalwork, and opulent embellishments.
Our Christian Lacroix collection stems from 89-90s frames and has a mix of glasses and sunglasses. They are mostly one off frames, all of which are new unused vintage stock, and some even have original cases.
