With a background originating from French, Swiss, Slavic and African roots, Sacha Walckhoff’s influences are as diverse as his origins. Walckhoff’s long association with fashion icon Christian Lacroix began in 1992 and continued for most of the ensuing two decades, with interludes designing menswear, womenswear and accessory collections for Kenzo and Michel Klein along the way. His tenure as hand-groomed successor to Lacroix culminated with his appointment to the post of Creative Director in 2010, from which he has led an ambitious expansion of the Lacroix brand into new areas of lifestyle design and home décor. More recently, Walckhoff has branched into new ventures beyond Lacroix, where he has defined and developed his own uniquely stylised vocabulary on projects such as a furniture design, a collection of porcelain collector vases with Portuguese manufacturer Vista Alegre, and a series of glassworks with Verreum, among others.
It was thus only natural that Sacha Walckhoff presented his last collection ‘Equus’ with at maison parisienne.
