Schiaparelli Paris f/w 2014 Haute Couture

Dear Shaded Viewers,

This season Marco Zanini really did embrace the spirit of the house of Schiaparelli with a sensual and elegant, modern interpretation of the House. The images are limited by my iPhone's capability to focus… I loved the mix of femme fatale with hard chic; the embroideries, feathers and flowers by Maison Hurel, Maison Lemarie, Maison Lesage and Maison Vermont were the personification of modern couture. Maison Gripoix made beautiful jewelry, leather gloves by Sofia Gants, beautiful shoes by Roveda, sunglasses by Marcolin…. and of course the hats by Stephen Jones were sublime. Bravo!
