Elsa Schiaparelli brought avant-garde fashion to the masses through her collaboration with surrealist artists. Schiaparelli gave us her trademark color “shocking pink,” culottes, tromp l'œil sweaters, and the first use of decorative zippers.
Schiaparelli Bra // Surrealist late to early Schiaparelli-esque black lace over nude mesh bra with black silk satin "hands" on cups. Black silk straps, narrow elastic with single metal hook in back hooks into metal grommets on other side.
Schiaparelli’s 1937 “Lobster Dress” was the result of a collaboration with famed surrealist Salvador Dali. The lobster painted on the dress by Dali himself was inspired by his 1936 “Lobster Telephone”.
