Farida Khelfa, Schiaparelli’s new representative | Le Marche & Fashion | Scoop.it

One was an Italian aristocrat born in a Roman palace, the other is one of 11 children of poor Algerian immigrants, raised on a notorious French housing estate.
But 123 years after Schiaparelli’s birth, nearly 60 years since her fashion house closed and 40 years after her death, her legacy has been embraced by the woman who cheerfully calls herself “the girl from the banlieue”.

The House of Schiaparelli has been resurrected, Khelfa is its ambassador and the Italian designer Marco Zanini has arrived from Rochas as the creative director.

“I cannot tell you how exciting this is,” says Khelfa. “We have brought a beautiful name back to the heart of Paris.”

Zanini’s first creations for the revived house, based in the chic Place Vendôme, will be paraded at haute couture week in January. [...]

Fay Fashion Show Spring-Summer 2014 - Highlights

Mariano Pallottini's insight:

Della Valle's own Fay brand - he has created a big modern enterprise, a multinational operation that not only makes very chic and elegant items but also gives its workers pride, a purpose and a quality of life.

"Mr Della Valle wanted his employees to come to work and be really happy to do what they do,". The Tod's factory in Le Marche on the central Adriatic coast is a special environment. of 60,000sqm, including a grand 1500sqm headquarters.
Alongside a gym and auditorium for international lectures, the most notable feature of the headquarters is a bright, light-filled nursery fronted by sweetly smiling early childhood teachers. Open from 7.45am until 6.45pm every day, the nursery is available for Tod's workers to drop off their children to be looked after while they toil.
Many of the older artisans at Tod's worked with Diego Della Valle's father, Dorino, in the 1960s, are from Sant'Elpidio a Mare, the village in Le Marche region where the Della Valles were born and still live. People for  Della Valle."are part of the project".

With this "foot on the floor", Della Valle created a billion-dollar business. He created two more brands - the urban shoe label Hogan and casual ready-to-wear Fay, acquired the French shoemaker, Roger Vivier and, currently, is relaunching of couture house Elsa Schiaparelli - with tastemakers du jour.

Having unveiled its second collection by Jefferson Hack, publisher of Dazed & Confused magazine, Hogan recently launched a collaboration with fashion stylist and long-time Marc Jacobs collaborator Katie Grand. Main line Tod's has also tapped fashion blogger Denni Elias of www.chicmuse.com for its Tod's Touch project, an online lifestyle magazine.

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.

Indranil Bhattacharya's curator insight, July 19, 2014 11:55 AM

Marco Zanini was 15 years old when he first read Elsa Schiaparelli's Shocking Life. A future in haute couture instantly beckoned. "She was punk before punk, Pop before Pop," he rhapsodized at a preview the other day. Now that he bears her mantle, his reaction was predictable: "Unbelievable!" And the stellar turnout today for his debut at Schiaparelli—Jean Paul Gaultier, Pierpaolo Piccioli, Maria Grazia Chiuri, Elle Macpherson, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, Ines de la Fressange, Jean-Paul Goude—suggested his enthusiasm had won over his peers. 

It's been sixty years since Elsa herself last showed couture (in the interim, she has shuffled off this mortal coil), but Zanini ensured that it might as well have been yesterday with the lineup he presented. He captured Schiaparelli's sense of color and decoration and—perhaps most important—her sense of humor, and all without resorting to lobsters or shoe hats or anything overtly Surrealist. And even if today the hair, the makeup, and Stephen Jones' headpieces had a touch of the crazies, they all added to a feeling that Zanini had made himself some twenty-first-century Merveilleuses. 

"She was a delicate paradox, the epitome of elegance with a certain taste that wasn't very elegant," Zanini said of Schiap. "She was the first to mix high and low." Dressing both the Duchess of Windsor and Mae West, in other words. In his collection, Zanini honored that instinct with outfits as supremely elegant as a silk chiffon skirt and matching blouse (it took twenty people three weeks to achieve the bouilloné effect on the skirt), and as supremely showgirl as a paillette-encrusted brocade bodysuit under a sheer silk chiffon robe de chambre. He insisted he had to restrain himself: "This is the first one; I didn't want to get drunk with it." He was also acutely aware of the looming trap of camp (those damn lobsters!). Nevertheless, Zanini chocked his nineteen looks with vivid prints, sweeping drama, gorgeous embroidery, and a spectacular party trick, in jackets that reversed from sober black mohair to a froth of white ruffle or a feast of feathers. Gripoix complemented the collection with jewelry as special as a Venus flytrap ring and a vine of glittering ivy that crawled up Kirsten Owen's arm.

Meet Marco Zanini, who is helping revive the house of Schiaparelli

Meet Marco Zanini, who is helping revive the house of Schiaparelli | Le Marche & Fashion | Scoop.it

Marco Zanini sits back in the Place Vendome atelier in Paris, making himself comfortable in his new position. Becoming creative director for the long- dormant fashion house, Schiaparelli, he says, is a mixed bag.
"I have this feeling of great joy, great pride and great responsibility, as well," he says. "This house has a legacy that is really unique and incredible."
Zanini took the position after several months of negotiations with Tod's owner Diego della Valle, who acquired the label in 2006. The 42-year-old Swedish-Italian designer had just completed the spring-summer runway for Rochas, and is taking on Schiaparelli's couture and prêt-à-couture (its version of ready-to-wear) immediately for Haute Couture Fashion Week in January.[...]
"Schiaparelli's approach to fashion really represents a unique way to combine fashion, art and culture," Zanini says. "She represented a very central cultural figure of the 20th century, not just in fashion but beyond." [...]
"She is one my favourite personalities in fashion history because of her personal life," Zanini says. "She was adventurous, brave and super-intelligent, and used her intelligence to succeed in life. What makes her so relevant and inspiring to people even today, is that she was so free-minded. She was able to do things her own way.
[...]

Mariano Pallottini's insight:

"I can identify with her irreverence and non-conformist thinking - that's for sure - and I admire the clever way in which she was irreverent but also able to execute the ultimate elegance, which, if you think about it, is a bit of a paradox. To provoke, but with supreme elegance."

Meet Schiaparelli’s New Designer, Marco Zanini

Meet Schiaparelli’s New Designer, Marco Zanini | Le Marche & Fashion | Scoop.it

Marco Zanini's appointment as creative director of the recently revived house of Schiaparelli is finally official, WWD reports. Rumors of his hiring began back in April, but neither he nor the brand confirmed until today. He joins Schiaparelli from Rochas, where he worked for five years after stints at Versace, Halston, and Dolce & Gabbana;

Founded by Elsa Schiaparelli in the late twenties, the fashion house has been defunct since 1954, and was eventually bought by Italian fashion magnate Diego Della Valle.

Marco Zanini's first collection for Schiaparelli will show during the Paris couture collections this coming January. He built his debut collection around the simple, feminine slip dress, and has since become known for creating fantastical but easy-to-wear separates like boxy, fur-trimmed brocade coats and candy-striped trousers. It'll be fun to see what he does with the house, which is steeped in tradition but hasn't produced a single garment in over five decades. [...]

Ever since fashion magnate Diego Della Valle acquired the rights to couturier Elsa Schiaparelli’s name in 2007, the fashion world has waited with bated breath for news of the label’s relaunch, which was formally confirmed last year. Today, following speculation in Women’s Wear Daily that Marco Zanini, creative director of Rochas, would be tapped as creative director, Schiaparelli revealed that the French couturier Christian Lacroix would produce a one-off 15-piece couture collection for the brand, to be shown at Paris Couture Week in July at the brand’s historic home at 21 place Vendôme.

The team who will revive the Schiaparelli brand has got a new member

The team who will revive the Schiaparelli brand has got a new member | Le Marche & Fashion | Scoop.it
Ex-L’Oreal fragrance division brand manager Camilla Schiavone has been announced as the latest member of the team that will revive the Schiaparelli brand, says WWD .

Diego Della Valle - the Tod’s SpA financier behind the resurrection of the iconic label that closed in 1954 - has also recruited Paris-based Farida Khelfa as spokesperson/muse. The brand is expected to announce its creative director in September and show its first collection on the Paris catwalk next March.

The new label will focus mostly on accessories, makeup, and cosmetics, with some clothes as well – a business model that Della Valle has called ‘pret-a-couture’. ‘There are a lot of rich people in the world who want something very special,’ he told the FT in May.
