About This Item: 
Known for her bravado and boundary-pushing frocks, Elsa Schiaparelli is undoubtedly one of the greatest icons of twentieth-century fashion After launching her eponymous haute couture house in Paris in 1927, the Roman-born designer captured the attention of the world at large not only thanks to her trompe l'oeil patterns and surrealist forms - but also because of her creative relationships with some of the epoch's most renowned artists For Schiaparelli, quite simply, fashion equated art From Salvador Dalí, who famously collaborated with Schiaparelli on her infamous "Lobster Dress, " to Pablo Picasso, Man Ray, Jean Cocteau, and more, this beautifully illustrated tome delves into the couturière's fascinating rapports with these artistic legends Through never-before-seen photography, intimate antidotes, and essays penned by some of today's most authoritative fashion critics and curators, this volume is the first definitive work dedicated to the shared inspiration between the designer and her menagerie of artist friends
