A First Look At Elsa Schiaparelli's Paris Apartment

A First Look At Elsa Schiaparelli's Paris Apartment | Le Marche & Fashion | Scoop.it

Welcome to the humble abode of Elsa Schiaparelli, the legendary designer whose Paris fashion house, as you may recall, is in the process of a major revitalization at the nimble hands of Tod’s CEO Diego Della Valle.
While the house has yet to name a creative director, the Times introduced us to the label’s new “face and organizer” Farida Khelfa back in May, and now here she is, ushering you into the eclectic Place Vendôme interior of the hallowed halls where Schiap once showed pieces like lobster dresses and lamb-cutlet hats to the delight/bewilderment of visiting editors.
The apartment has now been restored and redecorated by Vincent Darré, and now we have our first peek inside. A taste of the covetable décor: gilded mirrors formerly belonging to Yves Saint Laurent (a Christie’s score perhaps?), busts by Schiap’s frequent collaborator Salvador Dalí, and a Fernand Léger rug, clearly housed in another room than the one pictured.
Oh, and see that ‘Shocking’ pink couch? We want it. Please.
