« Eating is not merely a material pleasure. Eating well gives a spectacular joy of life and contributes immensely to goodwill and happy companionship. It is of great importance to the morale. »
Elsa Schiaparelli, Shocking Life, 1954
The very essence of Haute Couture is about creating the extraordinary out of the ordinary. The idea of a table laid out for a feast gives life to a collection full of grace. Each course is transcended by delicate opulence. Beauty and good taste merge to match exquisite silhouettes awakening the senses. The delectable can only be touched with the eyes. Indulgence challenges one’s taste. Yesterday the basement of Elsa Schiaparelli’s hôtel particulier was made into a trattoria to host intimate dinners, and today enjoying a great meal with friends may strangely become an act of resilience.
