I am insanely excited for this exhibition! I have been a fan of Schiaparelli for a long, long time. A favorite necklace in my collection is a bottle of Shocking Schiaparelli on a long gold chain.
Her designs were linked to surrealism and she partnered with Dali and other artists for some of her most memorable designs.
The Lobster Dress.
The Shoe Hat.
I recently watched Terry Gilliam’s 1985 dystopian flick, Brazil, and the main character’s mother is wearing a leopard version of the shoe hat!
Her collaborations with Cocteau. These are so whimsical, I’m drooling!
I will definitely be heading up to New York to see this exhibit as soon as possible!
