Exotic fish and butterflies inspired the florescent colors and patterns of this printed catsuit by Christian Lacroix. The designer’s exuberant use of unexpected colors, dazzling patterns, and lavish surface decoration prompted Time magazine to call him "the man with the magic paintbrush." Sleek and sexy, Lacroix’s flamboyant one-piece garment was ideal for women who wanted to take a walk on the wild side.
