What better way to admire an armoire full of Christian Lacroix gowns than from the comfort of a très chic armchair and ottoman set designed by the haute couture designer? It’s only fitting that the famed French fashion house has partnered with luxury furnishings brand Roche Bobois for a 25-piece capsule collection debuting for fall.
“Fashion and design are united by a common set of principles: creativity, audacity, and energy,” says Gilles Bonan, CEO of Roche Bobois. “Maison Christian Lacroix and Roche Bobois have united their values and know-how for a collection that truly embodies the French art de vivre.” This latest label mash-up for Roche Bobois follows a trio of collaborations with fashion power players like Jean Paul Gaultier, Sonia Rykiel Maison, and Missoni Home.
While Lacroix’s clothing collections are renowned for their opulent, costume-like quality (think Marie Antoinette time travels to the 21st century), Maison Christian Lacroix has an unmistakable ’70s vibe with its black lacquered wood and brass accents. Stripes in bold hues add interest to dining room chairs and sleek cabinets with silk-screen prints of street scenes from a bygone era are instant conversation pieces for anywhere in the home—especially a couture-filled dressing room. 311 Arch St., 215-922-2900
