Financial Statement Par Excellence: Designer Christian Lacroix for La Monnaie de Paris (The French Mint)

Applauding the recent appointment of designer Christian Lacroix, creator of the “poof skirt” in the 1980s, to the post of artistic adviser at the French Mint. Details via WWD: “Christian Lacroix, whose namesake couture house was shuttered last year, has been named artistic adviser to the Monnaie de Paris, the French mint, which houses a museum, photography shows and, naturally, coins galore. Lacroix’s first assignment is to design special medals for marriage and PACS, the term for civil unions in France. He said he also plans to dream up new commemorative forms, using precious metals. In his post-fashion career, Lacroix continues to design costumes for the stage, in addition to far-flung design projects from hotels to trams.”
