The Schiaparelli Spring 20201 Haute Couture collection features eccentricities with a tribute to both the work behind the magic, and the magic itself.
In his third collection for the French Maison, Daniel Roseberry challenges the idea of what couture is, and should be, by making clothes that respect the tradition of not only this Maison, but the artistry behind it, while at the same time exploding the cliches associated with the genre.
The lookbook opens with super-heroine bustier, this one in glossy black finished with a prodigious bow in Schiaparelli’s signature shocking pink.
“If you want to look like a cupcake, you can go somewhere else,” Roseberry said. “It’s not about being a man at all, it’s about being a jacked woman.”
A stretch-fabric dress knitted with more than 200,000 Swarovski crystals will appeal to clients whose own well-maintained physiques require no surface-level enhancements. Elsewhere, Roseberry made exuberant use of volume. A black column dress with ample folded sleeves would make a spectacular red carpet dress, but he also designed a couture jean jacket and a couture parka with grand hoods.
