Weekend Eye Candy - Elsa Schiaparelli, 1936

Earlier this week I posted about Elsa Schiaparelli and her use of plastic zippers in the 30s.  Here is another example from her Fall/Winter line from 1935/36.  The dress on the left is a black wool knit lined in white satin.  The bodice of the dress has a white plastic zipper at the front.  Schiaparelli used the same zippers to decorate the gloves.  Love that belt with the angled buckle!

Honestly, I think Ms. S was the originator of modern fashion. With vaguely different styling, and not in black and white, these dresses would be totally "normal" today. The one on the left looks a bit Mouret (or his designs look like hers!) The one on the right is more Prada.

Gawd, these are incredible. I could stare at the details on those pieces all day.
