Taking inspiration from the House of Christian Lacroix’s Haute Couture pieces, the RIXO founders delved into the brand’s vintage archives in Paris and re-engineered some of their iconic prints. Capturing the essence of Christian Lacroix’s archive, the collaboration collection consists of elevated ready-to-wear styles so good they would make Absolutely Fabulous’ Edina and Patsy exclaim “Lacroix, sweety!”.
Exuberance, excess and experimentation - the capsule designs play with varying scales and combinations of prints - juxtaposing diagonal stripes, florals, polka dots and checks. Lacroix’s dynamic motifs combined with a contemporary RIXO twist creates colourful pieces merged together for the maximalist. The collection marks RIXO’s resurgence of power suiting with two hero skirt suit shapes, alongside instantly recognisable RIXO dress styles and separates. RIXO have kept true to the baroque inspired elements synonymous with the House of Christian Lacroix using statement gold buttons, contrasting pockets, 3D rosettes, velvet trims, oversized jewel embellishment and pleated ruffles. The colour palette is made up of bright and punchy hues.
