Elsa Shiaparelli Garments to be Auctioned in Paris


According to WWD, forty creations by the late Italian design legend Elsa Schiaparelli will be available to the highest bidder as part of an exceptional sale of vintage couture pieces. Included are the circa-1938 shocking-pink and black striped evening gown shown above, and a rare 1937 Lesage-embroidered jacket made in collaboration with Jean Cocteau. The event will take place July 3 at Drouot-Richelieu auction house in Paris. Dating from the Twenties through the Eighties, designs by Jean Patou, Gabrielle Chanel and Christian Dior will also figure among the lots.

Have you been to the Elsa Schiaparelli website? It's interactive, and really incredible:
