Lacroix also disclosed that the French movie theater operator Gaumont has just asked him to design its new multiplexes, with the first location slated to open soon either at Euro Disney or in Amiens, both just outside of Paris.
“I feel that what I do is design. Why not a bottle? Why not stage costumes?” he asked. And for that matter — look out Tom Ford — why not filmmaking?
“I’m very attracted by directing,” Lacroix said. “One day a movie, why not?”
In fact, Lacroix said he sees no reason for barriers between fashion and other design realms. “I don’t like the world as it is. It can be vulgar,” he said. “My own weapon against this ugly world is to redesign it.”
