GIVING CHANGE: 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.
