Schiaparelli Haute Couture Spring Summer 2019 Posted by RUNWAY MAGAZINE on FEBRUARY 13, 2019 Schiaparelli Haute Couture Spring Summer 2019 – is the best show presented during this fashion week. The most spectacular and and amazing creative work of Bertrand Guyon, artistic director of Schiaparelli House, opened new vision on Schiaparelli house in stars and flowers. A lucky star. With her profound love of nature and the botanical world, Elsa Schiaparelli illuminated her salons of Place Vendôme with stars, cosmos, floral compositions and bouquets like a leitmotif, long before the days of the Surrealists. As Elsa said herself “To have a face covered in flowers, like a heavenly garden, would indeed be a wonderful thing!” (Shocking Life, 1954). Collection of Bertrand Guyon an astrological collection infused with horoscope signs, stars, the moon and the sun, collisions of fleeting comets, and interstellar elements blossoming out of the dark night sky. For day, ultra feminine peplum suits are defined by a sculpted silhouette, embroidered with scattered porcelain buds, pastel coloured gauze, floral guipure lace, mother-of-pearl and gold, as if playing blind man’s bluff in a cabinet of Meissen, Sèvres or Wedgwood porcelain. Jackets are jet black, embellished with illustrations of zodiacs and comets like a summer’s night, as if elevating the wearer into a galactic Garden of Eden. Strange graphic prints extend like branches onto silk gingham, flecked taffeta and double crepe. A rhinestone padlock guards the “Secret” kept in evening clutches and vanity cases, the precious stones like meteors in a springtime fireworks display, illuminating the night with its extravagance. Bertrand Guyon, Bravo! Absolutely amazing work!
