Surreal Accessories

With the exhibition Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations currently showing at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, there has been a renewal of interest in the work of late Italian fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli (1890-1973). The news that the Schiaparelli label will be relaunched later this year by Diego Della Valle, chief executive of Tod’s, highlights the continued relevance of her signature aesthetic, and the Surrealist influences that helped form it.

Stylus examines the re-emergence of Surrealism in fashion design, in particular for women’s accessories and footwear, where designers are reinterpreting the art movement for the contemporary fashion market.
