Pearl dresses, a collaboration between Schiaparelli & Swarovski

Schiaparelli and Swarovski continue their collaboration telling this season a story of mother-of-pearl and colourful multi-facetted crystal beads.

Everything started with a Lesage embroidery swatch from Fall 1940 Schiaparelli Haute Couture collection featuring mother-of-pearl flowers. The embroidery came on a black dress that Elsa Schiaparelli owned and later donated to London’s V&A.

Today, Schiaparelli design director Bertrand Guyon designs a wedding dress sprinkled with irises – one of Elsa Schiaparelli’s favourite flowers. Each bloom is embroidered once again by Lesage following the same original technique yet embellished with silver plate, Swarovski multi-facetted crystals and silver metal thread. The long ivory silk crepe cape-gown is scattered with 54,795 Swarovski crystal-hearted mother-of-pearls.

Further to Schiaparelli history of innovative materials, Bertrand Guyon collaborated with an independent female textile designer to create checked knitwear made of nylon yarn intertwined with Swarovski multi-facetted crystal beads. The exclusive savoir-faire merges 3D embroidery with almost invisible knitwear. Transparent, light and soft, it gives traditional knitting an unexpected volume and contemporary texture. Illuminated by a tartan of black jet and grege beads of over 2.4 million facets, the ruffled dress, made of this hybrid material, seems to defy gravity.

“Pagan goddess, a summer night, dream mythology” Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2018

“Sweltering Africa and languorous Asia,
A whole far-away world, absent, almost defunct,
Dwells in your depths, aromatic forest!
While other spirits glide on the wings of music,
Mine, O my love! floats upon your perfume.”

Charles Baudelaire

A pagan myth. Nature. Nubian tales and Moorish legends. Far away kingdoms where women exhale regal grace and elegance. Praising the work of the hand as it transforms ordinary synthetic or natural materials into ethereal sensuality. The prowess of the atelier infuses poetry into linen, raffia, nylon and plastic shopping bags when woven with silk, embroidered with Swarovski mother-of-pearl beads or braided with feathers. Fresh yet strong silhouettes play with infinite textures.
