Perhaps it is old news but it still breaks my heart, The Fall of the House of Lacroix

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I was reading The Business of Fashion this morning and came upon this article from Newsweek.It's not a new story but none the less it still breaks my heart. I interviewed Mr. Lacroix for the 2nd chapter of the Mr. Pearl film this past summer when all was really falling apart. That he was so generous with his time and thoughts at such a difficult time in his life deeply touched me and I, like many others, in the industry wish that this house could be rebuilt.
