MUSEE DES ARTS DECORATIFS - PARIS: Shocking! The Surreal World of Elsa Schiaparelli
PARIS, May 12, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

From July 6th, 2022, to January 22nd, 2023, the Musee des Arts Decoratifs in 
Paris will celebrate the bold and exciting creations of Italian couturiere Elsa 
Schiaparelli (b. September 10th, 1890, Rome – d. November 13th, 1973, Paris), 
who drew much of her inspiration from her close ties to the Parisian 
avant-garde of the 1920s and 1930s. Nearly 20 years since the last 
retrospective devoted to Schiaparelli at the Musee des Arts Decoratifs, the 
time has come to revisit this extraordinary designer's work, her innovative 
sense of feminine style, her sophisticated, often eccentric designs, and the 
thrill that she brought to the world of fashion. 

Shocking! The surreal world of Elsa Schiaparelli brings together 520 works 
including 272 silhouettes and accessories by Schiaparelli herself, displayed 
alongside iconic paintings, sculptures, jewelry, perfumes, ceramics, posters, 
and photographs by the likes of Schiaparelli's dear friends and contemporaries: 
Man Ray, Salvador Dali, Jean Cocteau, Meret Oppenheim and Elsa Triolet. The 
retrospective, a highlight of the 2022/2023 Exhibition Calendar, will also 
showcase creations designed in honor of Schiaparelli by fashion icons including 
Yves Saint Laurent, Azzedine Alaia, John Galliano and Christian Lacroix. Daniel 
Roseberry, artistic director of the House of Schiaparelli since 2019, also 
boldly interprets the heritage of Elsa Schiaparelli with a design of his own. 
The poetic and immersive scenography of Shocking! The surreal world of Elsa 
Schiaparelli has been entrusted to Nathalie Criniere. The exhibition will be 
presented in the Christine & Stephen A. Schwarzman fashion galleries of the 
Musee des Arts Decoratifs.
