The Schiaparelli Spring 2021 couture collection goes bold and redefines the genre.
Assuming Elsa Schiaparelli is looking down from above, her heart must be BURSTING with joy over what creative director Daniel Roseberry delivered for the Schiaparelli Spring 2021 couture collection. Like a double shot espresso, the newest designs provided a much needed jolt on a Monday morning and kicked couture week off with a bang!
For his third collection at the famed house, Roseberry pushed the boundaries on feminine stereotypes while redefining an art form that traditionally revels in wispy romanticism and princess gowns. It’s a charged and unapologetically opulent collection that invokes the codes established by Elsa while flipping the script on the fashion circuit.
“I wanted to challenge the idea of what couture is – and should be – by making clothes that respect the tradition of not only this Maison, but the artistry behind it, while at the same time exploring the cliches associated with the genre,” Roseberry explains in the Schiaparelli Spring 2021 couture collection notes.
“I want to make an alternative couture house,” Roseberry says of his position at Schiaparelli. “Here, the fantasy isn’t princess dresses or polite garments. Here, the fantasy is within.”
An Opulent Success
The unapologetically opulent Schiaparelli Spring 2021 couture collection replaces silk and lace with leather and neoprene. The familiar soft silhouettes of haute couture take on a bolder form — even as body armor. And, just as Elsa would have done it – the 25 looks are all lavishly embellished with volume, embroidery and GOLD! Because why be understated when you could instead stand out?
Daniel Roseberry’s alternative approach at Schiaparelli seems to be working, indeed! He’s fresh off designing a custom gown and pin for Lady Gaga’s recent performance at Joe Biden’s presidential inauguration. Over the holiday break, he also caught a lot of attention by designing a gown for Kim Kardashian that unsurprisingly went viral.
With a strong point of view and masterful skillset, Daniel Roseberry is charting a future for Schiaparelli that’s undeniably bright!
