Eating well gives a spectacular joy to life.–Elsa Schiaparelli
Elsa Schiaparelli (1890–1973) was an Italian fashion designer. Along with Coco Chanel, her greatest rival, she is regarded as one of the most prominent figures in fashion between the two World Wars. Starting with knitwear, Schiaparelli’s designs were heavily influenced by Surrealists, such as her collaborators Salvador Dalí and Alberto Giacometti.
