Cash, Credit, or Lacroix, Sweetie? Couturier Appointed to Mint.

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Now, Edina Monsoon won't just be able to wear Lacroix, she'll be able to win it and spend it too. Couturier Christian Lacroix, whose fashion house was closed last year, has been appointed to the post of artistic adviser to the Monnaie de Paris, a.k.a. The French Mint. His first project at the mint is to design medals for marriage and civil unions in France.
