2017 Fall Couture: Schiaparelli

At this point, I’ve learned to appreciate vintage Schiaparelli, and typically applaud the unique aspects of the label’s aesthetic. This season, Schiaparelli focused on shoulder detailing, applique and pin details with some abstract floral/paisley looking brocades. Semi-classic, with a brief zodiac theme that I wish was pushed just a little more. The styles seemed a little stiff at the beginning, and had an oddly rigid-looking structure. Overall, I found it  incoherent, with a couple standout pieces – notably, a really cool (back) heart puff jacket. Overall I wasn’t a  fan of the majority of the collection – I didn’t like the cut-and-paste vibe on some of the garments, or the effect of the abstract faces and shapes.
