WE INVITE YOU TO UPDATE YOUR BROWSER TO DISCOVER THE ESSENCE OF THE HOUSE OF SCHIAPARELLI.
3rd June 2015
Tennis & Fashion
At the Roland Garros Museum.
In May 2015, the Roland Garros museum is hosting a temporary exhibition on the theme of Tennis and Fashion.

From the tennis courts to the Haute Couture catwalks, the exhibition weaves a guiding thread between these two worlds, which have inspired each other and today continue to be enriched through their reciprocal influences.

The exhibition opens with a retrospective of city and sporting outfits, from the 1900s to the present, focusing on the major changes in fashion in each era.

A thematic presentation bears witness to the ties formed between sport and fashion. It allows visitors to discover the tennis outfit designed by Elsa Schiaparelli for Lili de Alvarez. In 1931, Schiaparelli created culottes and a removable tunic for the Spanish player, an innovation that made the fashion designer a sportswear pioneer. The tennis player wore this outfit – which was scandalous in its day – for the International French Open at Roland Garros and then the tournament at Wimbledon. The exhibition displays unpublished photos of this design and the original press release.
