Schiaparelli Couture Fall 2022-2023. Review by Eleonora de Gray, Editor-in-Chief of RUNWAY MAGAZINE.
How wonderfully unique and elegant creations and designs of John Galliano for Dior, Alexander McQueen, and Pierpaolo Piccioli for Valentino. Wait… This is Schiaparelli, recycled a little bit of everything.
I can bring look by look and tell what piece of Dior or Valentino has been used for modification (not even inspiration). But why bother? Would it change crafts of “recycling” of creative director Daniel Roseberry? No.
Daniel Roseberry recently wrote:
“I think we sometimes get defensive when our critics accuse us of just wanting to make beautiful things. But what’s wrong with wanting to make beautiful things? It’s not the only important part of life, of course, but it is a part of life. And to make truly beautiful things isn’t actually that easy. But it is a privilege – and I’m grateful for it every day.” – Daniel Roseberry
“I think we also sometimes get defensive when we see the designers, who have the privilege to work in a beautiful Haute Couture house, who shamelessly reproduce the designs created by others, appropriating them, claiming the glory. What’s wrong with wanting to bring this information to the public and people who buy these reproductions? It’s not fair to the designers who originally created them. Maybe it’s not the most important role of the critics and the media, but it is the right thing to do. It is a cause, if you like. It’s not easy to spot fake, copy, reproduction, it demands massive knowledge of the designs created since the beginning of time, especially the XXth century, and impeccable memory to identify and compare the original design and the copy.” – Eleonora de Gray, Editor-in-Chief of RUNWAY MAGAZINE
Cone-bra as a outwear garment was created by Jean Paul Gaultier for Madonna. The concept to use underwear as outwear, make it in denim belongs to Jean Paul Gaultier. Any reproduction is just a reproduction and can’t be attributed to other designer. That’s being said!
