Christian Lacroix Cuts and Pastes for Moleskine

Fashion designer Christian Lacroix made a name for himself with his fearless, multicultural mixing of bold prints, riotous colors, and luxe textiles. His eye for striking combinations is evident in the pages of a distinctively bound black book that he filled with collages (see below video) for Moleskine’s Detour Project, a group show of notable notebooks curated by Raffaella Guidobono.

Having traveled the globe–from New York and London to Shanghai and Tokyo (next stop: Sao Paulo)–the project’s latest detour is into meta-bookdom. Stocking stuffer alert: The Detour Book offers a glimpse into notebooks that have been decorated, hacked, and sketched by designers Yves Béhar and Paula Scher, artist Tom Sachs, writer Dave Eggers, photographer Mary Ellen Mark, and many other creative types. Texts by the likes of ubercurator Hans-Ulrich Obrist and Paris Review editor Lorin Stein help to contextualize the reproduced Moleskine pages that are divided into five sections: visionaries, semantics, virtuosos, romantics, and ironists. Vive la différence!
