Creative Director Daniel Roseberry unveiled his latest Schiaparelli FW22-23’ Haute Couture Collection during Paris Fashion Week.
Discover SCHIAPARELLI Fall-Winter 2022-2023 Haute Couture collection unveiled at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs during the ongoing Paris Fashion Week that combines glamour, softness, creativity, art, and of course, fashion. On same day, its Creative Director Daniel Roseberry presented a retrospective exhibition dedicated to Elsa Shiaparelli, titled “Shocking! The Surreal World of Elsa Shiaparelli.”
For this Haute Couture collection, Roseberry recreated the luxury of Christian Lacroix‘s 1987 debut. Some of the mature floral arrangements were inspired by designer and social icon Carolyne Roehm‘s book A Passion for Flowers.
The collection itself was influenced by “the way Elsa dressed,” which entailed meticulous tailoring. It also featured corseted velvet corsets, bias-cut dresses supported by threads, asymmetrical silk pajamas revealing breasts, flowing flowers emerging from the neckline or shoulders, exaggerated canopies, paintings Hat and hay shawl.
Roseberry once again proves that fashion is important part of life and making truly beautiful things isn’t easy. He admits fashion is silly at times, but he also states it’s provocative, upending, challenging, and meaningful, as well as breathtaking and beautiful.
“In recent years, though, it’s felt like fashion has tried its hardest to prove it actually isn’t silly. The pressure designers feel to make a statement about the current political situation, our ongoing climatic disaster, the inequalities among people of different races and genders, and an age of war has in fact led to some extraordinary work, not to mention a reengagement of our industry with the broader culture.” – Daniel Roseberry.
“I always talk about trying to achieve that state of creative innocence—of fighting tostay close to that person who fell in love with fashion and its possibilities, of not succumbing to cynicism or world-weariness,” Roseberry said.
“I hope that spirit comes through in this collection: I hope people who see it can tell what fun the team and I had making it. I hope the joy we felt, of creating things, of getting to make beautiful objects that people will always remember, is evident in every coat, dress, and accessory.” Daniel Roseberry.
The neckline of a black velvet jacket cut into a face’s profile and the encrusted Lesage embroidery that she relished in were modest tributes to Elsa Schiaparelli’s own Magical realist inspirations. A pair of earrings dripping bunches of golden grapes and so heavy that they had to be tied with a delicate tiara hair band brought a simple black velvet evening dress that appeared like one of Roseberry’s dramatic design sketches to life into Schiap’s zany universe. Peace doves are being delivered to the collection in 2022.
