Maison Schiaparelli was founded by Italian fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli in 1927 and instilled a creative spirit in twentieth-century fashion with her revolutionary vision on sportswear, Haute Couture, fine art, fashion accessories and fragrance. Her much-discussed collaborations with iconic artists like Dalí, Cocteau, Man Ray, Giacometti and Marcel Vertès became legendary. The maison diversified into ready-to-wear after being bought in 2007 by Diego Della Valle and in no time became critically acclaimed for its eccentric design, the use of Surrealism in its collections and some unconventional themes. Located at 21 Place Vendôme in Paris, the current creative director of Maison Schiaparelli is Daniel Roseberry. Under his reins.. the maison cultivates the incredible heritage of offering today’s woman bold albeit timeless style. Let’s check out some of its newest fashion accessories and jewellery.

Initially designed by Elsa Schiaparelli herself as a clasp on a handbag in order to bring an aura of mystery to this everyday object, the Keyhole is an iconic code of the Maison.
