Maison Christian Lacroix at the Met

20.06.2018

This year, The Metropolitan Museum of Art presents its biggest exhibition "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic imagination' unveiled on May 7th, 2018 during the Met Gala. Curated by Andrew Bolton, the exhibition is constructed as a pilgrimage through the 25 museum's galleries, exploring the Roman Catholic influence on Fashion.

Ecclesiastical art has met with the 55 fashion designers' pieces including the ones from Maison Christian Lacroix famously known for its flamboyant Haute Couture heritage.

Inspired by the crux gemmata, the Gold-Gotha jacket, embellished by its embroidered cross of colored crystals and seed beads, offers its own extravagant version of the religious symbol. A piece that became renowned thanks to Anna Wintour, Vogue US editor-in-chief, who featured it in her first cover for the magazine in 1988.
