Elsa Schiaparelli Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2016 by Bertrand Guyon. #PCHW

In his third couture collection- Schiaparelli Haute Couture F/W 2016– Guyon explored Schiaparelli’s summer 1938 circus show, a collection so iconic he expressed anxiety at the thought of reprising it. The risk paid off. It was his best judged effort so far, faithful in spirit and silhouette to Schiaparelli’s work, but not slavish about it.The collection was rather subdued, with elegant, even streamlined black and midnight blue tailoring and dresses. Guyon said he found many pieces in the archive in that deep shade of navy. The two nods in Schiaparelli’s eccentric direction were the extreme, built-up shoulder constructions and the lighthearted, somewhat surrealistic jewelry.
