The sun is getting warmer, the mild air is spinning our heads, and we are dreaming about summer, sea and a light breeze more and more. But while holidays are still far away, let us recall the Schiaparelli Spring-Summer collection 2024. 

If you are fond of the marine style, you will definitely appreciate it. The epigraph of the collection: "AN EVERYDAY SENSATION". The designer took inspiration from Marisa Berenson's (Elsa Schiaparelli's granddaughter) memories of her grandmother's extravagant style. Every piece of clothing in her hands, even the most simple or most mundane one, became a sensation. 

The more commonplace the garment was, the more flamboyant Elsa made it. It is in the spirit that the designer Daniel Rosebery approached the elaboration of the new pret-a-porter collection. 

This is the way of creation of 36 outfits with scaly textures, decorative shells and sea creatures. Let's take a look at the most outstanding ones! 

Black jersey maxi dress with tonal cadi stand-up collar and bib, golden brass bijoux buttons at collar and cuffs and ruffled cuffs, decorated with a wooden fish skeleton necklace.

Complemented by red lizard leather and ecru canvas sneakers adorned with golden toes.
