Last year, we told you that Schiaparelli will return to fashion in its original 21 Place Vendome showroom. French fashion designer, Monsieur Christian Lacroix will fashion a fifteen piece capsule couture collection in adulation to the design house. All looks will be displayed in Schiaparelli’s original Parisian aforementioned salon this July.
According to a press release, Lacroix
“”will pay homage to the Schiap legend by interpreting her iconic creations while perpetuating her timeless image” with a fifteen-piece collection presented at 21 place Vendôme, Elsa’s former headquarters.”
Lacroix on designing for the long forgotten designer and the efforts to make her relative:
“In this persona incarnating a true aristocrat, one finds a spirit where mathematics and literature as well as poetry coexist: Elsa is a sacred sphinge [sic] who never ceases to interrogate us while offering us new enigmas as answers. Art, theater and cinema…my wish is to reposition Elsa at the center of her maison and on the stage from which she once seduced the world.”
I am sure the pieces will be nothing short of amazing.
