Elsa Schiaparelli Spring Summer 2015: A process of revival: Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week

The iconic French fashion house is in the process of reviving the legacy of Elsa Schiaparelli, and this was clearly visible in this Spring Summer 2015 Haute Couture collection. During this process of rebirth the Parisian house has faced a multitude of challenges, including getting a permanent creative director. Marco Zanini, who was appointed as the creative director and presented two collections for the brand, didn’t last for too long and moved out almost three months earlier. This left the house to work with the existing creative team, who presented the latest couture collection. It was not an exceptional collection, but not unnoticeable either. The collection was contemporary and indicates a new direction for the house.

With an element of Surrealism reminiscent of Elsa Schiaparelli's artistic essence, draping and motifs were in tandem with modern cut and classic fluidity .Details like gloved hands unfastening a crystal neckpiece on the back of a dress or the hearts pierced by Cupid’s bow prints were some of the interesting details. Other stand-outs were the tailored white pantsuit worn with a fez, and the shower of stars falling down a dreamy black tulle column dress featuring a deep neckline.
