Daniel Roseberry, the creative director of the haute couture fashion house Schiaparelli introduced the revival of Surrealism for the upcoming Spring/Summer 2022 with the collection The Surrealist Holiday.
Inspired by the woman behind the house, Elsa Schiaparelli, Daniel Roseberry designed a collection that revisits the dualities of the founder of the fashion house. Is Elsa a glittering cosmopolitan? Or does she fall in love with the slow Coastal living? Is she everything and all at once?
The Surrealist Holiday, the ready-to-wear collection that brings the revival of Surrealism reveals two sides of a uniquely creative and visionary woman. One side of Elsa Schiaparelli’s belongs to the city, between public life, parties, work commitments, and Parisian lounges. The other side belongs to a relaxed Elsa, one with her family on vacation on the sunny coasts of the Côte d’Azur.
Daniel Roseberry tells us that Elsa Schiaparelli is both refined and barbaric, chic but provocative, tailored but relaxed. The Surrealist Holiday, the ready-to-wear collection for the Spring/Summer of the upcoming year, has the stipes of the navy style, the leather and rough cut of the rebels, and has the classic, streamlined, silhouette of the beginning of the century. In addition, the collection delivers glimpses of a nomad yet creative mind, like a circus acrobat.
This revival of surrealism is presented with black and white photography. As a matter of fact, the iconic surrealist photographer Man Ray could have been commissioned to highlight the fine design and tailoring of Schiaparelli’s Spring/Summer 2022 collection.
The contemporary photographer and director Nadia Lee Cohen is one of the protagonists of The Surrealist Holiday. Lee Cohen’s work mimics day-to-day life and depicts surrealist characters with a hyper-saturated digital coloration. In this manner, Schiaparelli’s collection is a full circle revival of Surrealism.
Again, Schiaparelli includes Surrealist jewelry with exaggerated – and grotesque – body parts such as ears and toes. The artistry, and signature, of Schiaparelli, is to make the unusual seductive and desirable.
The revival of Surrealism portraits not only Elsa Schiaparelli, the mother of the haute couture Maison, but also grounds the multi expression of oneself. Schiaparelli’s The Surrealist Holiday collection is seductively classic, deliciously nautical, and funky like the 70s. Daniel Roseberry is here to inspire us to fiercely speak our heart out through the way we dress and decorate.
