Cross Check

Christian Lacroix and Urban OutfittersPeter Lindbergh’s 1988 November cover for Vogue Magazine (also Anna Wintour’s debut cover) featured a black jacket by Christian Lacroix, encrusted with a Byzantian-like bejeweled cross. The couture jacket, provocatively styled with a pair of the model’s own acid wash jeans–the model being Israeli model Michaela Bercu– typified the then-novel idea of high-low dressing. Immortalized by the 1988 cover, the famous Lacroix jacket undoubtedly served as inspiration to Urban Outfitter’s “Beach Riot Delano” swimsuit.
