Elsa Schiaparelli’s name may not be as famous as her one-time rival Coco Chanel, but her impact on fashion history is just as important. She founded her iconic Parisian house in 1927, creating the first hand-knit pullover with a trompe-l’oeil motif, a design still popular today. Over the years, she gained a following with the fashion elite, eventually snagging the honor of being the first woman fashion designer to be on the cover of Time magazine in 1934. And she was even the subject of the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s famous annual gala in 2012.
Today, Bertrand Guyon is the design director of the label — he stays true to Schiaparelli’s signature characteristics, designing out-of-the-box Haute Couture gowns that make a statement — and celebs are loving it! From eye-catching prints like polka dots to embroidered pieces that transmit old-world elegance, Guyon’s designs always make a statement, even in a sea of amazing designer gowns. See how Zendaya, Jennifer Aniston, Taraji P. Henson and more stars rock the collection.
