Daniel Roseberry’s first Schiaparelli ready-to-wear collection pays tribute to the brand’s rich history, specifically its founder’s unique and whimsical style. The collection’s use of wrapped headpieces, larger-than-life jewelry, and metal shapes resembling human faces, flowers, and shells recalls Elsa Schiaparelli’s early designs, which were playful yet sophisticated.
Irina Shayk was among the models who walked the runway, showcasing the collection’s stunning pieces. Behind-the-scenes photos provide a glimpse into the making of the collection, while close-up garment photos from the runway highlight the intricate details and whimsical elements.
The gold buttons featuring keyholes and anatomical references, such as human body parts, were a signature of Schiaparelli’s work, and Roseberry incorporated them across the collection, even cutting similar designs into the fabrics themselves. One coat was lined with measuring tape embroidery, while another featured Roseberry’s own illustrations. The bags and accessories also boasted the brand’s signature motifs, adding a touch of fun to the collection.
It’s worth noting that the collection was produced in Italian factories, allowing the brand to cater to the larger market of ready-to-wear fashion. Moreover, the collection marks Schiaparelli’s first-ever puffer, which is classy and elegant yet playful.
The refined and muted color palette of the collection allows the whimsical and distinctive elements of Schiaparelli’s style to shine through. Daniel Roseberry’s first Schiaparelli ready-to-wear collection is a beautiful tribute to the brand’s rich history and its founder’s unique and whimsical style.
We thank Daniel Roseberry for continuing Elsa Schiaparelli’s legacy and look forward to seeing what he will create next for the iconic French fashion house.
