Each collection by Daniel Roseberry for Schiaparelli is awaited with incredible interest, but reality always exceeds expectations. Schiaparelli Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2022 collection is inspired by the “mythical high priestess”. According to the designer himself, this time he decided to abandon the volume and colour, but in fact, he was a little cunning: on the podium there was a place for accented shoulders, fluffy skirts, and wide-brimmed hats. Minimalistic silhouettes highlighted the curves of the female body and were framed by intricate gold designs.
Daniel Roseberry himself said philosophical words about his work:
“Designing this collection made me realize something else. There are designers who design because they love clothes. There are designers who make clothes because they love the craft, because they love people. There are designers whose work is indebted to fashion as a concept, or to glamour as a business. But I design in order to make people feel something. When clothes and craft and hair and music and the wearer are in harmony together, when they are all trying to communicate something, we can be reminded why we love fashion—why I love fashion. It isn’t for the celebrities. It isn’t for the likes. It isn’t for the reviews. It’s because, when it’s done right, when it has something to tell us, it can help us feel the inarticulable. It’s because it still has the power to move us.”
