j'adore schiaparelli!

this is the apartment of elsa schiaparelli. she was an early 20th century fashion designer.  she used ‘blistered’ rayon as her upholstery fabric in her bedroom pictured here.

i really need a new raincoat, and i’m having trouble coming up with a silhouette. i think i found the fabric, but still…no silhouette. i always like this kind, but it seems better for a winter or fall coat.

when i was in paris and visited the extension of the louvre that is specific to fashion, i was elated to find that the exhibition was that of my favorite designer. i picked up so much stuff in the gift shop and totally didn’t ever want to leave. i wanted to try on all the clothes! beautiful exhibit. anyways…one of the things i picked up was a little blank book with the above image on it…but i still can’t bring myself to use it. it’s soooo cute!
