The opulent eye-candy aesthetic of Christian Lacroix’s designs is reflected throughout his first New York boutique, opened in 2007. Joining the high-fashion parade along 57th Street, Lacroix’s two-story store eschews the minimalism of nearby neighbors like Dior and Yves Saint Laurent, presenting instead a sensory overload of lights, textures, and ornamentation. Part pomp, part disco, a mirrored front wall gives way to an array of tinseled stilettos, embellished handbags, and op-art bangles. The front-of-house jewelry collection is rife with hefty gold baubles incorporating Lacroix’s signature heart motif and chandelier earrings dripping with gems. Red carpeting snakes along the black floor through a den of menswear and up a flight of stairs to a secluded womenswear section. The two dressing rooms reveal scenes of French Baroque escapism—icy chandeliers, regal molding, and full-wall charcoal sketches of the south of France. Ready-to-wear collections of bold separates, eveningwear, and accessories rotate seasonally, with theatrical spins on the label’s famous touches: left-field patterns, voluminous sleeves and skirts, and drop-dead decadence.
