Galison will partner with Lacroix’s design team in Paris and begin selling the autumn 2016 collection immediately.

We will bring our expertise in sales and manufacturing to create even more unique Lacroix products.”
Nicolas Topiol, CEO Christian Lacroix, said:
“We are excited to partner with Galison to further develop and expand our stationery line of products. Galison’s expertise and commercial reach will provide us with the opportunity to continue to build on our worldwide distribution and successful collections.”
William Miller added:
“The acquisition of the Lacroix license into our family of designed and licensed gift products is part of Galison’s strategy to expand our offering across more product formats with elevated design focus and higher price points. Over the last few years, Galison has made significant upscale design changes to the line and will broaden assortments with ceramic trays, coaster sets and tea towels this fall.”
