Schiaparelli Spring '22 Couture Is For the Boldest in Hollywood

Daniel Roseberry's Schiaparelli collection has the fashion world buzzing about the return of Couture. Roseberry, who was appointed creative director in 2019, sent a black-and-white galactic-inspired lineup down the spring 2022 runway. Dresses were cut in sharp silhouettes and finished with gilded headpieces; a bustier made of twisted metal and paired with an expertly cut liquid white skirt was a subtle standout; while drama by way of oversize jewels, embellishments, hoods, and collars dominated the looks.

It's more is more, albeit with fine-tuned artistry, even restraint, when it comes to color palette and carefully constructed proportions. It's both forward thinking and nostalgic — biker-like shorts or a black sheath that looks like something Princess Diana might have worn, if not covered in oversize gold embellishments or cut to show so much skin. That's the beauty of it; familiar, but disarming; wearable art, if the wearer is bold enough. Roseberry taps into Schiaparelli's surrealist legacy while giving us a new vision — clothes begging to be worn for Lady Gaga's next cover or on the red carpet at Cannes.
