In his debut collection for the storied house of Schiaparelli, creative director Betrand Guyon drew on the house’s rich motifs—the padlock, the sun and splashes of Surrealism were all in evidence in his richly embroidered and nuanced fall/winter 2015 couture collection. Titled Le Theatre d’Elsa, the collections pays homage to the groundbreaking woman couturier, and bringing a sense of lightness and femininity that is simply perfect for the modern woman of means. Here, take an exclusive look behind the scenes at the Schiaparelli atelier, where the pieces come to life in the hands of their skilled seamstresses and make their way to the runway.
