The Schiaparelli Golden Palm jacket starring Melissa George

Schiaparelli introduces the Golden Palm jacket as part of an ongoing project dedicated to the most iconic jackets of its legacy. After the Zodiac jacket, the second edition presents the Golden Palm jacket.

Elsa Schiaparelli had always been inspired by her childhood and the world she extensively travelled. Born and raised at Rome’s Palazzo Corsini, she grew up surrounded by graceful palm trees. Aged 13, she visited Tunisia with her father for the first time. Years later, she would have a revelation when she discovered Hammamet. The light and the atmosphere of that village - whose Mediterranean shore sits opposite Sicily - were simply enthralling, as was its exotic nature. Her cosmopolitan personality led her to buy a house there, resembling a smaller version of Dar Sebastian.

These elements merged in Elsa Schiaparelli’s imagination to create a golden palm tree embroidery that she developed with Lesage. The original black wool jacket became one of the best sellers of the 1936 winter collection. Marlene Dietrich ordered one while illustrator Francis Marshall sketched Elsa Schiaparelli wearing her own jacket (that currently resides at the Philadelphia Museum of Art).

Today, design director Bertrand Guyon gave it a contemporary take. The atelier completely re-tailored its volume while its original motif remains intact.

Photographed on actress Melissa George, the limited edition shows the timeless allure of this sunny ivory version, from day to night.


Exclusively available at Schiaparelli, 21 place Vendôme.
