PARIS HAUTE COUTURE : SCHIAPARELLI

Posted on by Cameron Tewson

IMG_8311Welcome to “Théâtre d’Elsa” stage for Bertrand Guyon’s debut collection for the Schiaparelli label yesterday was a triumph of classical silhouettes and glamor of the 1930s and 40s. Far from being a historical essay on Elsa’s penchant for surrealism, the designer concentrated on luxurious fabrics and technical construction, including brocade ensembles in gold, “Turkey red” and light cyan; mink throws; tweed suits; A-line midi skirts in shimmery organza; and dresses with flattering, elegant, womanly cuts.
There was also a mini parade of ethereal chiffon Grecian gowns in ivory and gold that were exquisitely tailored the closing look was one in the house’s signature shocking pink.
