Edina Monsoon would be thrilled—Christian Lacroix, her favorite label, may have folded its RTW and couture operations last year, but the brand is back with a licensing vengeance. Lacroix CEO Nicolas Topiol announced that the brand has entered into agreements to place its name on women's eyewear (optical and sunglasses), luxury stationery, home textiles, and decorative wood panels.
