With news that Absolutely Fabulous will be back on our screens in December (in UK), there’s not a dry eye amongst fashion kids and highly overemotional – yet fabulously dressed – ladies alike. And if that wasn't enough there's more news that'll push fashion fans over the edge (cue jazz hands), Christian Lacroix’s new sunglasses for autumn/winter 2011 just hit the London shores! What could be more appropriate, sweetie-darling, than the natural pairing of the two? After all, for five seasons Patsy and Eddie tirelessly dedicated shout-outs to their favourite Paris couturier and immortalised fashion’s pet catchphrase, “It’s Lacroix, darling!”

“Christian loved Absolutely Fabulous and he made two special appearances on the show,” Sacha Walckhoff, Creative Director at Lacroix, tells i-D Online. “We had a lot a fun, but you had to watch the English version because the synchronised French one was really bad. I guess that kind of humour is quite British, which is also the beauty of it”, Walckhoff explains. The Swiss designer worked with Christian Lacroix for seventeen years, overseeing the ready-to-wear, jeans, knitwear and men’s lines, before the couture house faced liquidation in 2009, followed by the departure of Christian Lacroix himself.

Joanna Lumley was one of my all time favourites. This look brings back so many memories.

So sad to hear that lacroix was liquidated..I never knew that!
