 Elsa Schiaparelli was a famous Italian fashion designer and along with Coco Chanel, her greatest rival, she is regarded as one of the most prominent figures in fashion. Starting with knitwear, Schiaparelli's designs were heavily influenced by the Surrealists movement. This stunning beige cashmere and brown striped virgin wool two-piece ensemble is a perfect example of his genius. The sweatert is a stunning button-down design with 3/4-length sleeves. I love the novelty sailor-flap collared design! The narrowing wiggle-skirt construction emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. The vertical along help one look long and lean. This is the type of set you will reach for anytime you want to look like a starlet!
