Schiaparelli&Prada exibition

 

The exibition explores the striking affinities between Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada, two Italian designers from different eras.

“Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations” exhibition at the Met closed on Sunday to disappointing numbers. According to Fashion beast, curators Harold Koda and Andrew Bolton were inspired by a series of fictional interviews between the likes of Greta Garbo and Calvin Coolidge, Sigmund Freud and Jean Harlow that appeared in Vanity Fair magazine in the 1930s. The curators use an incisively imagined conversation between Miuccia Prada and Elsa Schiaparelli as the framework for examining the legacy of two women celebrated within the fashion industry for their subversive expression of beauty and their stubborn unwillingness to kow-tow to traditions.
