What’s better than a fairy tale re-written by a fashion writer? A fairy tale illustrated by the tale’s hero – Christian Lacroix! Fashion writer Camilla Morton has embarked on a new project: rewrite favorite childhood fairy tales blending them with the real-life stories of a famed fashion designer. Illustrated by the designers themselves, each fairy tale is a whimsical collaboration that will entertain children and fashion loving mamas alike.
The first in the series, Christian Lacroix and the Tale of Sleeping Beauty, is a lovely re-imagining of the classic tale with Christian Lacroix as an integral part of the tale. The story is sweet, but the illustrations are enchanting! Ranging from hand drawn illustrations to collage to a combination of both, Christian Lacroix and the Tale of Sleeping Beauty is by far the loveliest children’s story I have ever seen.
Christian Lacroix and the Tale of Sleeping Beauty came out on February 1st and can be purchased online at Amazon.com. I can’t wait for the second book in the series to come out – it features Manolo Blahnik and will be out in fall 2011!
