INSPIRATION Elsa Schiaparelli 1937... Miuccia Prada SS||2011

I've just been to New York, where I had the pleasure to visit at the Metropolitan museum of art the exhibition Schiaparelli&Prada: Impossible Conversations, where the setting was created in a plain Into the Fashion-style... I just loved it.

With this post I recommend the book:
