Schiaparelli: Couture SS22

Daniel Roseberry is seizing his fashion moment. “People kind of fell in love with the brand again while in lockdown,” says the designer of his glorious Schiaparelli reboot. Its had wonderful weirdness, which included gilded breasts, ears and lungs. It held up a surreal mirror to our strange times and was red carpet gold on the likes of Lady Gaga and Cardi B.

His SS22 couture was his first live show post-Covid lockdowns. With it, the designer took a step on from his initial shock of the strange. His focus was on striking black silhouettes, with spectacular gilded jewellery and embroidery. Some looked out of this world – one dress was orbited by golden Saturn rings. Others looked like celestial bodies – with Ormolu Sunbursts, halos and beaded God beams bursting forth from collars, cuffs and headdresses, as the designer’s imagination soared ever higher.

There were earthly delights, too, like the jacket with a forest of golden bonsai palm trees sprouting from the shoulders. With everything underpinned by exquisite tailoring, the whole thing had a spectacular sense of grandeur. The fantasy is real.
