In conjunction with a retrospective devoted to the house’s founder Elsa Schiaparelli, Daniel Roseberry presented his collection at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, dressed by everyone from Beyoncé to First Lady Jill Biden. Several of the outfits shown on the runway are featured in the exhibit, titled “Shocking!” The Surreal World of Elsa Schiaparelli.”
As you might expect, Roseberry would double down on the avant-garde Surrealist designs that have made him famous. Instead, he showed his most orthodox collection to date, steeped in the couture tropes that inspired him as a teen.
An elegant satin pouf skirt, a Provençal-style straw boater hat, and a velvet choker adorned with a heavy metal cross were all tributes to Lacroix.
In an interview, the designer said he hoped his collections would be remembered in the history of fashion. This one already has.” For once, there is no benefit of hindsight to say that.”
