The Italian house is back with another exhibition this summer, Schiaparelli’s Retrospective Museum.
The upcoming exhibition seems to be about art as much as it is about fashion. The last exhibition, held in 2004, was all about surrealism inspiration. After more than a decade, Schiaparelli’s Retrospective Museum is back with a theme of “Shocking: The Surreal World of Elsa Schiaparelli”. Likewise, it will be full of the designer’s original designs and legendary life.
Moreover, the Retrospective Museum this year will also bring to us sketches from the vast collection donated by Schiaparelli to the French Union of Costume Arts, now held by the museum.
The show will not only feature Elsa Schiaparelli’s works. In fact, it will also make spaces for many designers. Among them are Salvador Dalí, Jean-Michel Frank, Meret Oppenheim and Alberto Giacometti. Truly, a moment to be reckoned with for the world of couturiers as well as Schiaparelli.
“In today’s modern world that sees an obvious direct link between fashion and art, Elsa Schiaparelli, a self-described ‘inspired’ couturier, appears now more than ever as a woman of our times,” the host, Musée des Arts Décoratifs said in a statement.
“For two decades, Elsa Schiaparelli lived and breathed avant-garde fashion, using it as a playing field to reinvent women and femininity, style and spirit, with a lifework that remains strikingly modern. She incarnated the vision of a radiant and vibrant Paris with insatiable curiosity, delighting in all that was new.”
The exhibition is open starting this summer from July 6 this year. It will be two days after the house’s fall haute couture collection runaway during Paris Couture Week. Then, the exhibition will be up until January 22 next year. If you are looking for more information about Schiaparelli’ Retrospective Museum, please follow this link.
