Schiaparelli Haute Couture Spring Summer 2019

Creative Director Bertrand Guyon’s collection explored the founder Elsa Schiaparelli’s obsession with astrological signs and flowers. Her lesser-known work in the Fifties was the inspiration for the collection. Schiaparelli’s uncle compared the beauty marks on her cheek to the stars forming the constellation Ursa Major, when she was a little girl.

Guyon said backstage “It’s a very current collection which is almost futuristic, even, because I wanted to work on totally different colour combinations inspired by the porcelain of Sèvres, Chantilly and Meissen for the floral section. It’s also very humorous and optimistic”.
