A while ago, I started to report about my favorite runway shows from Paris Couture Week, who took place from the 5th of July until the 10th of July. But, summer got me so I’ve been a little bit MIA lately and behind my schedule. So the only thing I can say is: Sorry guys! But, I’m sure you all understand me 😉
To be honest: I never heard of this designer. So of course, I looked up some info about them. Maison Schiaparelli exists since 1927 and was established by Elsa Schiaparelli. In 2012, they reopened the Couture House on Place Vendôme, in the same place where Elsa left it. Farida Khelfa was named ambassador of this house. On their website, they have a magnificent timeline with more information and a lot of illustrations that show you the evolution of this designer. It’s surely worth your time, so click here to watch and read.
When I saw the runway pictures for the first time, I felt like I was thrown back into the 50’s. The models, the colors, the prints .. It just all felt old but with a modern touch. I immediately fell in love with it. The runway itself looked very tight and the grey wall behind helped to accentuate the colors used for this collection. This collection makes me feel like I’m going to a fancy ball in a nice hotel in Paris.
And as you’re used to, I’m sharing with you my favorite pieces from this collection. So get ready for our fancy ball!
Get me one of these dresses and I’m ready to go! 🙂
