Animal print, crystal embroideries, butterflies, feathers… we don´t even know where to start, but one thing is for sure: Schiaparelli knows how to make a statement!
Creative director Bertrand Guyon seized the surrealistic and humorous approach for which the Label is known for and presented a collection which lead the crowd into a flamboyant fantasy world. Guyon´s inspiration was Schiaparelli herself - an eclectic personality and brilliant mind that lived and thought fashion different to many others at the time.
The models thus wore bold colour combinations including Elsa´s favourite “shocking pink”, brooches, appliqués and big animal-like hats as well as dresses, jackets and pants in black velvet and blue satin. The balance betwee outstanding and reserved pieces is successfully achieved and the versatile nature of Elsa therefor perfectly captured.
If that all sounds like a dream (not to say surreal) to you, we can assure you it was definitely not. To convince yourself take a look at the colourful and eccentric collection!
