Model in two-piece Schiaparelli bathing suit, photo by George Hoyningen-Huene, ca. 1928
Further to the trompe l’oeil exhibition started yesterday at Musée des Arts Décoratifs, here are some pictures of the surreal creations of Elsa Schiaparelli.
These photos are taken from the book Unravel, knitting in fashion, catalog of the exhibition that took place at the MoMu of Antwerp MoMu a few months ago.
