Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2017
“The more the body is respected,
the better the dress acquires vitality”
Elsa Schiaparelli, Shocking Life, 1954
Opulence and simplicity define Schiaparelli. The Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2017 collection explores this defining essence through the strength of each of its founding elements, with lightness and glee. A new purity appears this season. The focus is on endlessly dividing, getting to the core and revealing sensuality and subdued exuberance.
