From fashion to lifestyle

With a background arising from French, Swiss, Slavic and African roots, Sacha Walckhoff’s influences are as diverse as his origins.

Walckhoff’s long association with fashion icon Christian Lacroix began in 1992 and continued for most of the ensuing two decades, with interludes designing menswear, womenswear and accessory collections for Kenzo and Michel Klein along the way. His tenure as hand-groomed successor to Lacroix culminated with his appointment to the post of Creative Director in 2010, from which he has led an ambitious expansion of the Lacroix brand into new areas of lifestyle design and home decor.

More recently, Walckhoff has branched into new ventures beyond Lacroix, where he has defined and developed his own uniquely stylized vocabulary on projects such as a furniture collection for the Parisian gallery Gosserez, a collection of unique porcelain vases with Portuguese manufacturer Vista Alegre, and a tableware collection with Rosenthal,among others.
