PARIS — The Christian Lacroix fashion house — which shuttered its boutiques in France and the U.S. after shrinking to a licensing operation in 2009 — is venturing into retail again.
On June 1, the French firm plans to open what it dubs a “mix and match” boutique in a former printing shop at 24 Place Saint Sulpice on the Left Bank here. Lacroix first used the 1,450-square-foot space for a men’s wear show in 2010, and the opening coincides with Designer’s Days in Paris, a citywide celebration of industrial design.
