Schiaparelli Couture Spring 2019

When Elsa Schiaparelli was a little girl, her uncle Giovanni, a renowned astronomer, compared the beauty marks on her cheek to the stars forming Ursa Major. Years later, she commissioned a brooch in the shape of the constellation, which became a personal talisman.
That anecdote from her autobiography “Shocking Life” was one of the childhood memories that inspired creative director Bertrand Guyon’s spring haute couture collection, which explored the founder’s obsession with astrological signs and flowers through the prism of her lesser-known work in the Fifties.
Frothy tulle confections and colorful botanical prints contrasted with sequin-sprinkled gowns inspired by the sky at night, carrying evocative names such as Luna Orbiter, Zeta Draconis and Via Lactea. The latter, a ruffle dress in inky tulle, was embroidered with a sparkling milky way.
A master of the embellished jacket, Guyon introduced radical new shapes such as hourglass-shaped peplum jackets that came with matching bell-shaped skirts or shorts. He borrowed lush embroideries from antique porcelain motifs, and culled an astrological pattern from a 17th-century star atlas.

Story Number Two, dubbed “The Pink Victory of Schiaparelli,” features a blend of sportswear and more formal pieces in variations on the shade that Schiaparelli herself dubbed “a shocking color, pure and undiluted.”

A sculptural hooded parka with extravagantly puffed sleeves brought to mind the showstopping pink moiré opera cape from creative director Bertrand Guyon’s last haute couture show.
“That cape was a phenomenon,” said Delphine Bellini, chief executive officer of Schiaparelli. “I think it’s the most requested piece from any of our collections in terms of editorial. We haven’t seen it since the show.”
While the parka was one of a clutch of made-to-order pieces, the collection itself focuses on sporty items, with a wink to Nike, the ancient Greek goddess of victory. A striking photo print spliced images of Hellenistic statues — including one wearing an American football helmet — with house symbols such as a heart-shaped

Schiaparelli May Be Considering Bertrand Guyon for Creative Director

IN THE PINK?: Could Schiaparelli be zeroing in on its new creative director? According to market sources, Schiaparelli is in talks with Bertrand Guyon, a seasoned couture designer currently at Valentino. The Frenchman, a graduate of the École de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne, has also worked at couture houses Christian Lacroix and Givenchy.
Owned by Italian entrepreneur Diego Della Valle, Schiaparelli has been searching for a creative director since last November, when it parted ways with Marco Zanini after a two-season collaboration. Its spring collection unveiled in January was designed by an in-house team.
