Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Schiaparelli

Since the house’s Costume Institute exhibition, Schiaparelli has gone through a bit of a reinvigoration. (Anna Wintour has a way of reviving these things; Harvey Weinstein bought Charles James and plans to breathe new life into the storied couturier’s house with wife Georgina Chapman, and in 2012 the Met hosted Impossible Conversations between Miuccia Prada and Elsa Schiaparelli.) With designer Marco Zanini at the wheel, Schiaparelli has been newly revived, showing again at couture week.

In a further effort to get with the times, the brand has today launched a new website wherein you’ll find answers, animated films, and images for any question you could have ever dreamed up about Elsa herself, Schiaparelli’s history, its current couture, the making-of, and current designer Zanini.


Whether it’s information on a hat you’re after, or a timeline of Elsa’s creative life, the website hosts it all — particularly smart for the fashion fanatic, students, and lovers in general. Get your bookmark tab ready…

Storied fashion house Schiaparelli confirms that Marco Zanini will design for the label, after his name spent some time flying around the air. Zanini comes from Rochas, and he reportedly had very little to do with the spring collection that just showed in Paris. Zanini’s first show for Schiaparelli will be couture in January.


Taking Zanini’s place at Rochas is designer Alessandro Dell’Acqua.




Happy Monday, y’all.
