Schiaparelli’s Spring Summer 2024 collection is a resounding declaration of luxury, with prices that reach astonishing heights: coats up to 39,000 euros, jackets up to 12,000 euros, trousers up to 10,000 euros, bags up to 9,000 euros, and belts up to 3,000 euros. While some may find these price tags a tad extravagant, they undeniably place the brand firmly in the realm of luxury fashion. For the discerning fashionista, these pieces may well be worth the investment.
Daniel Roseberry, the Texan from the suburbs of Dallas, has come a long way from the controversies and unlicensed reproductions of famous cone-bra corsets of Jean Paul Gaultier. With the Spring Summer 2024 collection, Roseberry has presented a range that truly honors the legacy of Elsa Schiaparelli. Amazing pieces, details, tailoring and looks – everything is rooted in the great identity of the house, mastery in all jewelry and every detail which adorned the garments.
The collection is a symphony of craftsmanship and attention to detail. Every piece is infused with the essence of the house, paying homage to its surrealistic roots. Smocked cigarettes adorning jackets and bags may verge on excess, but in the world of couture, extravagance is often celebrated. The influence of Salvador Dali, who collaborated with Elsa Schiaparelli in the past, is evident in the whimsical additions like lobsters, eyes, and noses that playfully adorn various garments, lending them a dreamlike quality.
The iconic keyhole, reimagined as a sultry cleavage on dresses, is a nod to Schiaparelli’s signature style, adding a touch of sensuality to the collection. Schiaparelli’s famed slippers and boots with golden tiptoes have been joined this season by sneakers with the same opulent detailing. This season Schiaparelli for the first time introduced sneakers with golden tiptoes. Note to myself – this poised to become the hottest item for the next season.
And I can surely affirm – this collection is a success.
Daniel Roseberry’s Spring Summer 2024 collection for Schiaparelli is a triumph of luxury and legacy. With an unwavering commitment to the brand’s identity, meticulous craftsmanship, and a touch of surrealism, Roseberry has rightfully earned his place in the world of fashion. Bravo, Daniel, for becoming the rightful heir of Schiaparelli’s legacy, and may this collection signify that Schiaparelli is indeed in good hands.
