Sunnies: Elsa Schiaparelli

If you are the one who fall in love with MOO EYEWEARS, you cannot overlook this master piece from Elsa Schiaparelli (1890-1973), which gives a sense of fifties era and surrealis. She is the greatest rival to Mlle Coco Chanel during that era. I would not explain much, let you alone see her great work as below:

Brief Info:

Elsa Schiaparelli hung out with the Surrealists and designed dresses with Salvador Dalí. Not only does this mean she was into artist collabs approximately 65 years before Louis Vuitton teamed up with Takashi Murakami, but it also means that her work should be interesting to museum visitors who aren’t obsessed with fashion. It also links her to last year’s blockbuster Alexander McQueen show, which played off the elements of surrealism in his work.

Also, if you could remember the lobster inspired dress on Lady Gaga, I am quite certain that Lady Gaga was impacted by the famous Lobster dress from Elsa with Dali!
