Oh Petit Bateau, you do know how to get us excited about Christmas. It has just been announced that Petit Bateau and Christian Lacroix have collaborated with the Opéra National de Paris on a special collection for this holiday season. Thank heavens Lacroix stays with the theme of the brand and plays with the timeless stripes we know and love. The end result is beautiful pieces featuring mixes of gold and red, navy and white, and some new shades for the brand including purple, coral and fuchsia. Oh and we can’t forget to mention that of course the pieces come in versions that will fit mother and child.
Christian Lacroix comments on the collaboration:
“Just like children today, all year round I wore white ribbed
vests and garments whose “touch and feel” I still remember.
Our mothers helped us dress, sometimes tenderly, sometimes
with a tinge of impatience, depending on whether or not we
were running late for school or bedtime.
I was very grateful to be asked by Petit Bateau to design a
few timeless pieces, just for the evocation of those memories.
Of course, the Opéra de Paris, a flagship monument, also
plays a role in the project and I am very pleased to be able to
work against this backdrop once again.”
