Surrealism writ joyful. Bijoux that are as much armor as they are embellishment. A disciplined palette. An irreverent take on silhouettes. Discover SCHIAPARELLI Fall Winter 2021.22 collection presented during the ongoing Paris Fashion Week. Drawing the inspiration from Elsa Schiaparelli‘s obsession with anatomy, creative director Daniel Roseberry pays tribute to the body itself – its beautiful sculptural quality, its wondrous shapes.
What is Schiaparelli? It’s a dedication to the unexpected, the risky, and the exuberant. You can see this philosophy in pieces like the oversized men’s parka, rendered in denim but with gold bijoux snaps; or the Milano knit trench coat trimmed in leather; or the navy-leather cowboy-cut pant. You can see it as well in the jewelry: oversized necklaces, earrings, and rings that combine a Dadaist absurdity with swaggering proportions, so that a row of molar-inspired rings (each crown of which is set with a glittering crystal) are worn on every finger, like a knuckle ring. – from Schiaparelli.
All of us who love fashion understand that there’s an uneasy (if necessary) marriage between design and commerce. Too often, commerce has to win. Which is why I love working for couture house, where creativity still defines the mission and is never treated as an afterthought.
