SCHIAPARELLI
Elsa Schiaparelli (1890-1973) was one of the world's leading fashion designers and innovators from the 1920s through the 1950s. Through those years she and her arch-rival, Coco Chanel, defined the development of their industry. Schiaparelli was the more daring and bold, juxtaposing her startling colors, shapes, and materials in wonderfully inventive ways. She began her design career in Paris, expanding to London and New York. She moved to New York in 1940, then returned to France after World War II. In the mid 1950s she discontinued all of her enterprises except for licensing agreements, allowing the use of her name on accessories for several more years. The earliest Schiaparelli jewelery is unmarked or marked with lower case block letters. Post war pieces are marked Schiaparelli in script.
