One of the world's most famous fashion designers gives us his own account of his life and career, from his childhood in Arles to his arrival in Paris, where he met his wife and partner, Francoise. Hundreds of lavish color and monochrome illustrations strikingly illuminate his story. Selected from Lacroix's sketchpads, his diary, and old family albums, they combine with new sketches drawn especially for this publication. 260 illus. 134 in color.
