Madame Helena Rubinstein owned this evening jacket from Elsa Schiaparelli's 1938 Circus collection. The bolero jacket is completely covered in embroidery with elephants and acrobats set against swirls of pink. As always, Rubinstein adds dramatic jewelry from her vast collection. For more photos of Rubinstein and her singular style, see my recent blog post about her.
