A Tribute To Elsa Schiaparelli

* sorry for not posting in forever, my life has been quite stressful and busy recently

Elsa was an amazing designer in the 30’s. She rivaled Coco Chanel even, she was known for her surrealist and whimsical designs. Wheras Chanel wanted to dress a modern women in clean and crisp lines, Schiaparelli want women to channel there beauty through exotic and sometimes grotesque imagery. It was no wonder that Elsa was great friends and collaborators with artist Salvador Dali

Sadly Schiaparelli surrealist couture went out of fashion during and after WWII. Women wanted the new look that Dior and Chanel gave them and Elsa went out of business in 1955

and now some of her best designs and ideas!

GRAPHIC SWEATERS

I’m surprised by how modern these look, I mean almost every store in America carries sweaters like these

SKELETON DRESS

Most models today don’t need this dress, but it still is quite creepy

SHOE HAT

Maybe its just because women don’t wear hats much anymore but I could never imagine anyone in this

LOBSTER DRESS

With Dali being the main inspiration for this dress, I thought it would turn out much weirder

SHOCKING PERFUME

I have a vintage bottle of this. It smells like burnt mashmallows, and it really reminds me of that popular perfume Aqualina Pink Sugar
