This season marks the release of Schiaparelli’s first ready-to-wear collection.
Inspired by the house’s founder, Elsa, the FW23 pieces aim to provide a complete wardrobe for the Schiaparelli woman.
The collection features everything from crisp white poplin shirts to short velvet cocktail dresses and infuses these classics with Schiaparelli’s trademark wit, irreverence, and drama.
Discussing the new FW23 release, Daniel Roseberry said: Of all Elsa Schiaparelli’s legacies, her most enduring might have been her marriage of art and fashion. Elsa became famous for her couture, but her career debut was those then groundbreaking trompe l’oeil knits.”
“Pure sportswear, they were an aggressive rebuke of everything frilly and flouncy, knitwear that was easy to slip on – and off (you can think of them as the athleisure wear of their age). Those early sweaters were among the first of her many “viral” moments over the course of her brief but influential career,” he continued.
