Maison Schiaparelli – From Sketch to Embroidery

On the eve of opening our first permanent shop in Bergdorf Goodman in New York, I sat down and, for about nine hours, painted freehand a 40-foot-long drop cloth with the codes of the Maison: body parts, padlocks and keyholes, measuring tapes and bijoux were rendered in black ink on bone-white cotton—the finished canvas served as both that night’s tablecloth at our dinner, and later, this season’s creative jumping off-point.
