The French-Swiss designer worked with Lacroix during 17 years until the famous fashion house was shuttered in 2009. The label was reopened and Walckhoff was appointed as the new creative director.
“The last year has been all about rethinking and rebuilding strategies and finding new ways to express the skills of our wonderful house and finding new partners to do it,” says the designer. “We have been travelling a lot for that: London to work on our home fabrics line made with The Designer Guild, New York for our stationary line by Libretto and Paris, of course as always, so the collection is the reflection of our last year of new ventures.
According to WWD, the legendary designer has teamed up with Spanish label, Desigual, to create a 30-piece collection, which was shown at Barcelona Fashion Week earlier this week.
