Spring 2019 Haute Couture: Schiaparelli Dreams of Star’s flowers

A collection inspired by Elsa Schiaparelli’s love for astronomy and flowers, with ultra feminine peplum suits sculpting the silhouette and embroidered with scattered porcelain buds, pastel coloured gauze, floral guipure lace, mother-of-pearl and gold, “as if playing blind man’s bluff in a cabinet of Meissen, Sèvres or Wedgwood porcelain.”

Jackets are jet black, embellished with illustrations of zodiacs and comets. Strange graphic prints extend like branches onto silk gingham, flecked taffeta and double crepe. Black evening dresses are embroidered like the Milky Way, perfect to shine in the night on the red carpet.
