Schiaparelli Page 1
Hallelujah! A major name has finally been confirmed to design for the soon-to-be-relaunched house of Schiaparelli — although, alas, only for a one-off collection.
Marco Zanini is the latest name to be added to the list of designers potentially poised to take the reins at the soon-to-be-revived Schiaparelli label. But with over a year of speculation behind us, encompassing everyone from Erdem Moralioglu and Nicolas Ghesquière to Giles Deacon and John Galliano, does this latest set of rumors hold water any more than the rest?
Until the houses themselves finally settle the matter, it looks like any designer worth their salt is going to get a turn in the rumor mill for the vacant posts at the helms of Balenciaga and Schiaparelli. Today’s fodder? Christopher Kane and Erdem Moralioglu, two of London’s hottest tickets, who some think will soon be making the leap across the channel.
Back in May, Italian entrepreneur Diego Della Valle revealed he was working on a Schiaparelli reboot. Everyone wondered who would helm the iconic fashion house, and names like John Galliano and Giles Deacon were thrown out — and shot down. But one thing we now know for sure is that Inès de la Fressange is involved.
We agree with Jenna Lyons on pretty much everything. Don’t you?
After last year’s blockbuster Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibit, the Costume Institute had a dilemma. How could it possibly top such a remarkable show? The answer, of course, is it couldn’t.
We never thought we’d end up with so much Prada on the worst dressed list for an event in honor of the brand, but it just goes to show that label isn’t everything. On an evening where everyone’s watching (and werking) there really is no room for error.
Schiaparelli: coming to a store near you!
And the countdown begins! Tomorrow at 6:30PM (that’s less than 24 hours from now!) we will all be collectively glued to our Met Gala livestreams, taking in the red carpet in outfits decidedly more comfortable (and, alas, decidedly less fabulous) than the ones we will be seeing on screen. What to expect? Well here are the dates, dresses, and tables we know of so far:
John Galliano is back in the headlines, if only for a moment.
