Elsa Schiaparelli may be best known for her boundary-pushing fashions, but she also cultivated creative relationships with some of her era’s most renowned artists — for example, Salvador Dalí himself collaborated with Schiaparelli in creating her infamous “lobster dress.” This beautifully illustrated book delves into the designer’s fascinating relationships with such art world royalty as Dalí, Pablo Picasso, Man Ray, Jean Cocteau and others. Featuring never-before-seen photography, intimate anecdotes and essays penned by a handful of today’s most authoritative critics and personalities (the list of authors reads like a fashion Who’s Who), this volume celebrates the shared inspiration between the designer and her phenomenal friends.
