"Fantasy is a flower that dies in passivity, in order to grow, it needs determination." —Elsa Schiaparelli

The cosmopolitan sophistication of the Schiaparelli woman confirms itself as a symptom of style dictated by a great personality. The new collection is characterized by a versatile elegance that is representative of the Mediterranean, but also European, origins of the Maison. The Esprit de Jour alternates with the Esprit de Nuit, not without amazement. In fact, the day is sublimated by the dark, filled with butterflies and golden locks that seal the female body began with embroidery, buttons and sophisticated jewelry. The night, instead, is represented by bold, decidedly colorful and sumptuous, almost experimental clothes. In this case, femininity is underlined by pure lines and almost liquid cuts. Impressive are the animalistic fantasies, just like Elsa's passions for butterflies, for dogs, for stars and stars, but also for art and for the most esoteric jewels. Wigs and plumage become modern in creating a message aimed at celebrating the idea of freedom: so precious, to be guarded with a padlock.
