Christian Lacroix dresses French Railway Employees
Although a Paris court recently accepted a plan to reduce couture house Christian Lacroix to a licensing operation, the designer continues to dress thousands. Last week, French railway operator SNCF said some 20,000 employees would sport new Lacroix-designed threads starting next month. The new uniforms are gray and purple and include blouses, skirts and jackets for women, and pants, jackets and striped shirts for men. No stranger to transportation, Lacroix has also designed the uniforms and train interiors for Tézo and TGV lines, as well as the flight personnel uniforms for Air France.
