About The Artist:

Elsa Schiaparelli (1890-1973) was an Italian fashion designer. 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 like her collaborators Salvador Dal’ and Alberto Giacometti. Her clients included the heiress Daisy Fellowes and actress Mae West. Schiaparelli's output also included distinctive costume jewellery in a wide range of novelty designs. During the 1930s her jewellery designs were produced by Jean ClemŽnt and Roger Jean-Pierre, who also made up designs for buttons and fasteners. She was also one of the first people to recognise the potential of Jean Schlumberger who she initially employed to create buttons for her in 1936, who, at the end of the 1930s, left to launch his jewellery business in New York. In addition to Schlumberger, ClemŽnt and Jean-Pierre, Schiaparelli also offered brooches by Alberto Giacometti, fur-lined metal cuffs by Meret Oppenheim, and pieces by Max Boinet, Lina Baretti, and the writer Elsa Triolet. Compared to her unusual couture 1930s pieces, 1940s and 1950s Schiaparelli jewellery tended to be more abstract or floral-themed.
