Schiaparelli Haute Couture Fashion Week SS24
Schiaparelli kicked off Haute Couture Fashion Week SS24 in Paris last week. This collection focused on the house founder Elsa Schiaparelli's fascination with astronomy through the eyes of creative director, Daniel Roseberry.
For some context. In 1877, Elsa Schiaparelli's uncle, Giovanni Schiaparelli, who was the director of the Brera Observatory in Milan, discovered a series of channels that marked the mars’ surface. He also coined the "Martian", sparking our modern fascination with the possibility of discovering life on other planets. And it’s evident that this intrigue has been a core pillar throughout the brand’s history.
This collection, dubbed ‘Schiaparalien', experiments with immense proportions, from huge funnel necklines to balloon ballgowns, blending high art with high fashion. There was no lack of creative inspiration here, with models donning the catwalk dressed in glossy black latex, floor-length beaded fringe and even screens of lace to disguise the face.
But the show-stopper that had people talking is a minidress made from a selection of modern relics such as microchips, Y2K mobile phones, calculators, motherboards and even desktop computer fans amongst crystals and mirrored tiles.
This collection was brought to life by our amazing Launchmetrics Spotlight photographers, and the full show is available in our exclusive Launchmetrics Spotlight gallery. Scroll down to catch the highlights of Schiaparelli Haute Couture Fashion Week SS24.
