Schiaparelli kicked off Paris Haute Couture Week this morning presenting its Fall/Winter 2022 collection by Daniel Roseberry at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs.
The presentation titled “Born Again” represents a new era of the Couture House that continues to push and modernise the boundaries of couture but also doesn’t forget the heritage of the House. The presentation comes in line with the unveiling of a new exhibition in Paris which will showcase some of Elsa Schiaparelli’s most iconic designs.
“All of us who work in fashion know that much of the rest of the world thinks that what we do is silly. It’s a boring criticism, and we all argue otherwise, but if you think about it, fashion is silly at times. It’s also provocative, upending, challenging, and meaningful. It’s breathtaking. It’s beautiful.” Said Roseberry in the show notes.
He spoke of the need for those in fashion to justify their meaningfulness over the past few years.
“I think we sometimes get defensive when our critics accuse us of just wanting to make beautiful things.” He Said. “But what’s wrong with wanting to make beautiful things? It’s not the only important part of life, of course, but it is a part of life. And to make truly beautiful things isn’t actually that easy. But it is a privilege—and I’m grateful for it every day.”
