20 of 20 people found the following review helpful By Lilly Ford on May 24, 2012
Format: Hardcover
Lately there has been a rising interest in Schiaparelli's designs, and this new book is a welcomed addition.
It is a little book as the title implies, but it is well-made and printed on high-quality paper.
The book serves as a concise illustrated introduction to Schiaparelli's design philosophy, but I cannot comment on the text, as I've not started reading it yet.
The book is heavily illustrated with a beautiful mix of archival and contemporary photos showing the garments' beauty and colorfulness.
This is a recommended addition to any fashion library, another highly recommended book is the one recently published by the Metropolitan Museum about Prada and Schiaparelli.

A beautiful little book full of colored photos of some of the most beautiful fashions ever! Elsa Schiaparelli was a genious way before her time. I can't believe I have never heard any of today's stars on the Red Carpet say "I'm wearing vintage Schiaparelli!" I would.
But I'm not a STAR!
