A CHARMING COLLECTION FOR WORKING GIRLS
Christian Lacroix is one of those meticulous French designers whose Ready-to-Wear creations begin to take on all the trappings of haute couture. For the summer of 2004, his "Working Girls" collection is a case in point, with a wide mélange of colors, fabrics, textures and prints, he still manages to put them together to form one complete, artistic thought. The attention to detail and finish is what sets his work apart.
Hailing from the south of France, Lacroix has always exhibited a bit of gypsy spirit, and his delightful summertime collection this season flirts with a nomadic theme. You can just see the spirit of peasant women of Eastern Europe wrapped in the brightly colored prints.
Having just won the contract to refurbish France's renowned high speed "TGV" train, Lacroix is definitely on the move, whether that be to exotic points east, or even to the sunny Mediterranean.
This collection fits all occasions, and will be a must for fashion connoisseurs.
