Christian Lacroix is best known for the "pouf skirt" look. In the 1980's his couture house used sumptuous fabrics and outrageous designs producing extravagant costume designs. He remarked that his designs were "fun, foolish and almost unbearable." His designs became out of step with the economic climate of the 1990's and he proceeded to have up's and down's within the fashion industry. He did create a bazar line which produced mostly perfumes but also fashion accessories and clothing. This bag has the bazar label. It is pouch like and made of a soft and buttery suede. The front is a camel suede while the back is a milk chocolate brown. The front has an outrageous and abstract design of nickle sized stainless steel metal discs and Christmas irregular shaped glass pebbles resembling the look of coral. These mixed materials are presented in clumps and the design covers most of the front with only a small amount of the suede showing. The bag has a dimensional and textural look. The discs have a hematite bead affixing them to the surface. The red "pebbles" are thick and chunky looking. The colors of red, steel and camel are exceptionally striking. The back is unadorned. There are two dark brown handles with a drop of 8". The bag closes with an internal snap. The inside is lined with a red satin like fabric. The "Bazar Christian LaCroix" label is sewn inside. There is a sewn in label listing the materials and the country of origin (India). The inside is in great condition without any sizes of wear or use. The measurements of the bag are 6 1/2"h x 8 3/4"w x 1+"d. Likewise the condition of the bag is exceptional, looking as though it was never used. (The steel discs are a little tarnished, have a bit of "patina"). In spite of his up's and down's Christian LaCroix has kept his creativity and his ability to produce items that are different, unique and striking. A cool pouch!
