The Schiaparelli Spring 2023 RTW collection feature exquisite tailoring rendered in the world’s most beautiful fabrics, with all the wit and signatures of the brand with a play on human anatomy, bijoux, and special detailing.
“I was also inspired this season by a recent trip to Il Pellicano, the beloved Italian resort in Porto Ercole. There I watched as women from around the world got dressed—for a day at the beach and later, for drinks and dinner. I realized I was creating a uniform for them in my head: stark strokes of color in sharp but roomy silhouettes, embellished with unapologetically glamorous bijoux. It made me think about how jewelry is such a hero element in a woman’s life. A good, inventive piece of jewelry lives forever; it’s there for its owner whenever she wants it,” said Creative Director Daniel Roseberry.
And yet Schiaparelli ready-to-wear isn’t just a more accessible cousin of Schiaparelli couture. It’s also our opportunity to speak to all sides of a woman’s life: the one that craves sumptuous evening gowns in satin and hammered silks, liquid viscose, and vibrant acetates; but also the one that needs crisp white cotton shirts, clean-lined wool pencil skirts, and trousers in every cut and fabric. It’s couture to live life in, whether life is a dinner party or the office or a flight.
The clothes aren’t easy – not in an age when easiness so often slips into laziness – but they are meant to work hard for the woman wearing them, to adapt to her life and her needs.
