Schiaparelli presented it Spring/Summer 2021 Haute Couture collection as part of Paris Fashion Week.
Designed by Daniel Roseberry the collection represented his extravagant interpretation of a women’s strength today. Bold and daring it puts women in the forefront with the invitation to express themselves freely.
Endorsed by a host of celebrities including Kim Kardashian, Kylie Minogue and Tracie Ellis Ross who all posted to the brand’s Instagram account prior to the presentation this collection is brave and welcomed at a time when the world has become so mundane.
Tongues were already wagging as to what this collection would entail after Lady Gaga’s extravagant gown at President Biden’s Inauguration Ceremony earlier this week and it didn’t disappoint.
Bold embellishment, oversized bows, ruffles, layering and an unusual distortion of shapes and sizes – this collection was brave and revealing of the path Roseberry wishes to take. Of course, there were elements of the past – Elsa Schiaparelli’s shocking pink was without a doubt a key part of the collection, but it was presented on a muscle bearing, dress complete with fake abs.
This collection was surely about expression. The expression for women to be whoever they want to be in a world that’s changing rapidly. Finding inner strength and knowing how to express it in ways that will not only make them look pretty, but make them feel strong and powerful.
