Central Park

Schiaparelli Couture AW1415

The handpainted « Central Park » pattern, which features squirrels and rats, in the Schiaparelli by Marco Zanini Couture Autumn/Winter 2014-2015 Show, is named after New York City’s urban park.

Some Central Park-influenced collections : Donna Karan Pre-Fall 2010 (this collection took its inspiration from autumn leaves in Central Park), Isaac Mizrahi Autumn/Winter 2010-2011 (this show referenced camping in Central Park), Trussardi by Umit Benan Spring/Summer 2013 (the program notes of this Manhattan-inspired collection mentioned the trees of Central Park).

Christian Bérard

Schiaparelli Couture SS14

The bicornes that Stephen Jones has created for the Schiaparelli by Marco Zanini Couture Spring/Summer 2014 Show reference Christian Bérard’s brushstrokes.

Other Christian Bérard-inspired collections : Dior by John Galliano Couture Autumn/Winter 2005-2006 (this show was partly influenced by how Dior’s designs were reflected in the work of Christian Bérard), Moschino Spring/Summer 2004 (the pink georgette scarf-printed dresses were based on Christian Bérard’s surrealistic work), Nina Ricci by Peter Copping Spring/Summer 2011 (some sketches that Christian Bérard made for Nina Ricci inspired this collection).
