With a new creative director at the helm of Christian Lacroix, the former couture house launches menswear for fall 2011. The folks at Dazed Digital talk to new Lacroix designer Sacha Walckhoff, who says: "I wanted to show that "Christian Lacroix" is more a state of mind, a gesture than Haute Couture imagery. There is a way for Lacroix to be closer to the real life without losing "un point de vue " which is, I think, unique. The menswear line help us to give this vision of Lacroix that I always had: "being chic is an attitude, can be affordable and part of your everyday life"." [Dazed]
