How I started


Xmas by Xian Lax

GZ 140

Collection: Christmas 1994

Winter 1994

Number of pieces: 22.222

''Xmas by Xian Lax'' was designed by the French couturier Christian Lacroix. He also designed the special-packaging. Christian Lacroix says: ''To me, Time and Space are great luxuries, so I don't really like to quantify them. That is why I wanted to make of this watch something more than a mere counting machine; I wanted to make a jewel, an object of seduction, playing with the idea of hands - or lack thereof - contained within a kind of equally whimsical evening bag.''
