FASHION SENSE
One designer's creativity transcends
disciplines

Born in France and raised in Switzerland,
Sacha Walckhoff caught the design bug early
on. " As far as I can remember, I needed to
imagine a world I would like to live in, " he
says. " First, I did my own clothes and now I
am designing my own home. All this came
out of a personal need. " After graduating
from the Escuela de Artes y Técnicas de
la Moda in Barcelona, Walckhoff moved to
Paris to join the fashion house of Jean Remy
Daumas in 1984, later working for Dorothée
Bis, Michael Klein, Kenzō Takada, and
then Christian Lacroix. Appointed creative
director in 2010, a year after Lacroix left
the company, Walckhoff built a home décor

department. " I always thought there wasn't
much different between designing a dress or
a chair, " he says.
Establishing the Lacroix house in distinct
disciplines for various brands-tableware
for Vista Alegre, furniture for Roche Bobois,
carpeting for Moooi-Walckhoff created his
first collection of porcelain vases in 2014, at
the invitation of Galerie Gosserez in Paris. " I
discovered this entire new world of design, "
he says.
His work with porcelain has continued
with the unveiling of Magic Garden, a
collection for Rosenthal, in early 2020 that
he plans to expand with new pieces this
year. " The concept was to have something of
quality but for daily use, " he explains. " We all
remember the cup in which we had our hot
chocolate [growing up]. I had this memory
in mind while designing this collection. "
Walckhoff also has a new series of cases,

boxes, and table centerpieces featuring
sculpted, handpainted horses for Portuguese
manufacturer Vista Alegre.
Over the next year at Christian Lacroix,
Walckhoff will continue his work with Vista
Alegre by designing family games made
out of porcelain. In addition to a line based
on the fashion house's scarves archive for
Designers Guild and Mantero, Walckhoff
is also developing a series of sustainable
fur rugs with Miksi, a wallpaper and rug
collection with Yo2, and a range of coffee
tables for Edition van Treeck. Despite
wearing such diverse hats over a short time
span, Walckhoff says his creative process is
slow. " I like to have time, to be able to leave
an idea behind and go back to it later to see if
it's still a good one, " he explains. " I want my
ideas to stay. " hd
