PARIS — Bernard Krief Consultants, which has submitted an offer to buy Christian Lacroix out of administration, also has made a bid to acquire embattled lace manufacturer Societé Lucien Noyon SAS with a view to developing a pole of luxury French textiles artisans, said Krief’s international director, Beatrice Alba.
Battered by competition from Asian lace manufacturers, Noyon is in the final stages of its administration period. It is not known if any other suitors are after the company.
