Schiaparelli and the Artists

Schiaparelli and the Artists


Known for her bravado and boundary-pushing dresses, Elsa Schiaparelli is undoubtedly one of the greatest icons of twentieth-century fashion. After launching her eponymous haute couture house in Paris in 1927, the Roman-born designer captured the attention of the world at large not only thanks to her trompe l oeil patterns and surrealist forms but also because of her creative relationships with some of the epoch s most renowned artists. From Salvador Dali, who collaborated with Schiaparelli on her infamous Lobster Dress to Alberto Giacometti s furnishings for her salon and Rene Magritte, whose surrealist works inspired some of the designer s creations, this beautifully illustrated tome delves into the couturiere s fascinating rapports with these artistic legends.
