Lacroix to Design Couture Collection for Schiaparelli | FASHION & LIFESTYLE! |

Ever since fashion magnate Diego Della Valle acquired the rights to couturier Elsa Schiaparelli’s name in 2007, the fashion world has waited with bated breath for news of the label’s relaunch, which was formally confirmed last year. Today, following speculation in Women’s Wear Daily that Marco Zanini, creative director of Rochas, would be tapped as creative director, Schiaparelli revealed that the French couturier Christian Lacroix would produce a one-off 15-piece couture collection for the brand, to be shown at Paris Couture Week in July at the brand’s historic home at 21 place Vendôme.
