Costumes by Lacroix for the Paris Opera National

Today on the British Vogue blog, there is a post on Christian Lacroix's costumes for the Paris Ballet National. I really miss Lacroix terribly. I am glad he has been busy; collaborating with Desigual, designing furniture, illustrating a fairy tale, and now, costuming "La Source".

Yes, I am glad Lacroix has been busy, but no matter what he is doing, there is still a void in the fashion world that he once filled. (There is also another void created just recently at Dior. Bring back Lacroix! hint, hint LVMH!).
