Body Parts Jewelry mimicking the human form by Maison Schiaparelli

Body Parts Jewelry by Maison Schiaparelli for the Spring/Summer 2021 couture presentation at the Paris Couture Week 2021 captivated the fashion enthusiasts. The stunning couture collection mimicking the human form was as much a sheer feat of craftsmanship as its body parts jewelry. The Italian couture house through the collection paid tribute to its founder Elsa Schiaparelli who was known for her surrealist collections. She had established her radical style by seeking inspiration from Futurism and Surrealism and is known for her surrealist collaborations with artists such as Salvador Dali and Jean Cocteau.

The avant-garde body parts jewelry inspired by the human anatomy were an eclectic flamboyant over the top spectacular pieces; as much artistic as they are fashion. The surreal jewelry pieces included golden toe covers, finger caps incorporated with long fingernails; gold laden nipple buttons; golden tooth and ear shaped earrings; golden teeth with pearl detailing and purses with golden nose clasps.

The Spring/Summer 2021 collection was the brainchild of the Maison’s Artistic director Daniel Roseberry. His take on couture contrasted the very nature of what the term is conventionally associated with. For S/S 2021 Roseberry showcased reimagined opulence that blurred the lines between body and adornment. The sartorial take on the human anatomy was a shift from the ordinary. This bold artistic expression that took creativity liberty served as a sort of escapism. The collection was a mix of artistic supremacy and horror that was welcomed with glee. It is however, a territory that has and will continue to compel and confuse.
