back to shocking times

this season IT-colours is one of my all-time favorite colours: pink....SHOCKING PINK, and when i think of this colour i go back in time and visit the creator Elsa Schiaparelli at her atelier in Paris.miss Schiaparelli was an eccentric woman who worked and lived at place De vendome Paris, in her time she created some amazing pieces and did all kind of colleborations (her lobster dress which she created with Salvador Dali is one of her most memorable one) and designed movie costumes (MOULIN ROUGE from 1952 with Zsa Zsa Gabor as leading-lady).Elsa was also THE biggest competition for COCO CHANEL as she also created custom jewelery (which still can be found on the Internet) and founder of SHOCKING PINK....with Schiaparelli in mind i surged for an outfit for this fall. some BLACK & WHITE for the back-in-time feel....i'm no fan of VIVIENNE WESTWOOD but this dress from her ANGLOMALONIA label rocks my fashion world especially with these amazing ALEXANDER MCQUEEN booties in shocking pink....Schiaparelli quote: "IN DIFFICULT TIMES FASHION IS ALWAYS OUTRAGEOUS"
