Fall 2016 Couture
It’s been a little bit of a rough ride trying to get Maison Schiaparelli back into the world with the fashion house after shutting shop in 1954 and only reappearing again in 2014 with the efforts of Marco Zanini leaving with only one year at the fashion house which leads us to Bertrand Guyon. In this collection, and his debut for the line, he takes couture on a journey. We are seeing a homage to the year the house shut down 1954 and to her surrealism tendencies (for those who don’t know she was good friends and collaborated with artist Dali). The velvets and chiffons, brocades, iridescence, and a parade of chiffon evening gowns and the recipe for success is there. Add in some super heavy and playful furs…are those real?…and they may just have found us the mainstay for this house that I personally pray will stay open for many many more years to come.
