Sacha Walckhoff recognised the roots of Paris fashion house Christian Lacroix this season with heavy trinket trunk embellishment and a take on the sack suit in a combination of loose tailoring and heavy expression.

The Creative Director, inspired by the Buffalo era of the 1980s, ensured a retrospective of the House was the focus of a somewhat sporadic and conservative collection.

Two toned voluminous sweaters gave soft tailored trousers a casual feel whilst outerwear came in the form of duffle coats in soft ivory and shearling coats in tartan and sombre grey.

White shirts were embroidered with tartan and monotone Lacroix signature crosses as well as two toned white and tartan button downs.

The collection, in comparison to its female counterpart, dwindled in experimentation. Frivolous prints were limited to a starry-eyed take on the kaleidoscope sported entirely on an athletic inspired hooded sweater and trousers.

Yet the more outrageous fabrics were questionable. Red lacquered distressed leather was the choice for a single-breasted button down over coat with tartan lining.
