Dali and Schiaparelli Debuts October 18
l’exposition Dali and Schiaparelli 18 octobre

January 23, 2017

Imagination and Daring: “Dali and Schiaparelli” Debuts October 18, 2017
First-ever Retrospective Exhibit of Designer Elsa Schiaparelli and Artist Salvador Dali

ST. PETERSBURG, FLA (January 23, 2017) – Delight in the daring and irreverent works of two celebrated artists when Dali and Schiaparelli opens at The Dali, in St. Petersburg, FL on October 18, 2017. The exhibit – presented in collaboration by The Dali Museum and Schiaparelli Paris – will feature haute couture gowns and accessories, jewelry, paintings, drawings, objects and photos, as well as new designs by Bertrand Guyon for Maison Schiaparelli. This will be the first exhibition dedicated to the creative relationship and works of Elsa Schiaparelli and Salvador Dali – friends and collaborators that set Paris and the world ablaze with their groundbreaking visions.

Elsa Schiaparelli was regarded as the most prominent figure in fashion between the two World Wars. Her designs deliberately subverted traditional notions of women’s roles and beauty, embracing and exaggerating the transgressive nature of fashion. Schiaparelli explored bold Surrealistic themes in her designs, heavily influenced by artists, especially Dali, with whom she often collaborated. The vibrant colors, experimental fabrics and elegant handmade decorations set her apart from other designers of the 1920s and 1930s. Some of the most notable clients for Schiaparelli’s haute couture designs included the Duchess of Windsor, Wallis Simpson; heiress Daisy Fellowes; and actresses Mae West and Marlene Dietrich.

“We are honored to bring the vision and work of Elsa Schiaparelli to the Museum, not only as a collaborator-confidant of Dali’s, but also as another example of a dynamic woman whose aesthetic and production constituted a cultural force,” said Dr. Hank Hine, Dali Museum Executive Director. “Having recently opened the Frida Kahlo at The Dali exhibition, which presents the painfully beautiful work of Frida Kahlo, we find a type of resonance between these two iconic women: they both reflected and influenced the times and social zeitgeist in which they lived and worked.”

Schiaparelli wrote that she “invented” her dresses, and the designs were known for their elegant and daring aesthetic combined with exquisite craftsmanship – a marriage of new ideas with traditional craft. Her designs were like the paintings of Dali in that they combined renaissance precision with wild imagination and dreamlike visions. Their fashion and art both delighted and shocked the senses and that approach was a trademark of their collaborations; their works embodied a sense of freedom and possibility that enlivened popular culture during a tumultuous time.

In 1954, Schiaparelli closed her couture house and devoted herself to writing her autobiography – Shocking Life – written in the third-person, like Dali’s own biography. After remaining quiescent for more than five decades, Maison Schiaparelli was reopened in 2012 at 21 Place Vendome, the very place where Elsa Schiaparelli left it. Today, Schiaparelli continues the designer’s legacy by creating alluring and surprising designs for the Hollywood elite and private clients around the world. A selection of these new designs including fashion and jewelry pieces will be featured in the show.

The Dali will be celebrating the exhibition with a grand fashion show and gala, bringing Paris chic to downtown St. Petersburg. The event will allow guests a glimpse into the secret world of haute couture. Held on Saturday October 14, 2017, the black tie affair will begin with a fashion show featuring contemporary Schiaparelli designs followed by an elegant dinner reception. A more casual yet equally celebratory Sunday brunch will be held the following day. Tickets for both events are forthcoming; stay informed by registering for alerts at TheDali.org/Schiaparelli.

A variety of other events and programs will also accompany the show. Dali and Schiaparelli will run through January 14, 2018, followed by the opening of Dali and Duchamp, which premieres at The Dali on Feb 10, 2018.

The Dali and Schiaparelli exhibition will be accompanied by a catalog with essays by Dilys Blum, Curator of Costume and Textiles for the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Dali Museum Curator of Exhibitions William Jeffett, Dali Museum Director Hank Hine, and exhibition consultant John William Barger III.

The exhibition is organized by The Dali, St. Petersburg FL in collaboration with Schiaparelli, Paris with loans from the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Metropolitan Museum and others.

ABOUT SCHIAPARELLI
Schiaparelli is a French couture house located 21 Place Vendome in Paris, the very place where Elsa Schiaparelli had left it in 1954 when she decided to close it to write her autobiography Shocking Life.

Elsa Schiaparelli was the first designer to give a theme to her collections. She pioneered the fusion of art and fashion by collaborating with her artist friends such as Dali and Cocteau. She invented shocking pink, the zipper in Haute Couture, trompe l’oeil garments, culottes and the newspaper print. Throughout her entire life, she has been an independent strong woman and a daring creative force pushing boundaries, building bridges between worlds that were previously not linked and anticipating more than once what would become mainstream culture.

Today Schiaparelli’s unique spirit of Haute Couture merging art, innovation, craftsmanship, quality and audacity enters a new chapter of its story. Created in 1927 by Elsa Schiaparelli, the house of Schiaparelli celebrates its 90th anniversary this year.

Imagination et audace : l’exposition Dali and Schiaparelli  commence le 18 octobre 2017

Il s’agit de la premiere exposition retrospective de ce genre consacree a la couturiere Elsa Schiaparelli et a l’artiste Salvador Dali

ST. PETERSBURG, FLORIDE (23 janvier 2017) – Pour la premiere fois, les œuvres audacieuses et irreverencieuses des deux artistes complices seront reunis lorsque l’exposition Dali and Schiaparelli debutera au musee Dali de St. Petersburg (Floride) le 18 octobre 2017. Developpee en collaboration avec le musee Dali et la Maison Schiaparelli, elle presentera des robes et des accessoires de haute couture, des bijoux, des tableaux, des dessins, des objets et des photos, ainsi que des creations recentes de Bertrand Guyon, directeur du style de la Maison Schiaparelli. Il s’agira de la toute premiere exposition dediee a la relation creative unissant Elsa Schiaparelli et Salvador Dali, amis et collaborateurs, qui ont embrase Paris et le monde de leur vision unique.

Entre les deux guerres mondiales, Elsa Schiaparelli etait consideree comme la creatrice incontournable du monde de la mode. Ses creations ont resolument bouleverse les idees traditionnelles du role des femmes et de la perception de la beaute, en jouant sur le caractere transgressif de la mode. Tres influencee par les artistes, notamment Dali, avec qui elle a souvent collabore, Schiaparelli a explore les themes surrealistes a travers ses collections. Les couleurs eclatantes, les tissus experimentaux et le raffinement des details faits main la distinguent des autres createurs des annees 1920 et 1930. Parmi ses clientes les plus importantes figurent Wallis Simpson, duchesse de Windsor, Daisy Fellowes, l’heritiere de l’empire Singer, ainsi que les actrices Mae West et Marlene Dietrich.

« Nous sommes honores de faire partager la vision et le travail d’Elsa Schiaparelli au musee, non seulement en tant que collaboratrice-confidente de Dali, mais egalement comme exemple de femme independante et dynamique dont l’esthetique et la creativite ont constitue une influence culturelle certaine », a declare le Dr Hank Hine, directeur general du musee Dali. « Venant d’ouvrir ses portes au musee Dali, l’exposition Frida Kahlo presente la triste et magnifique œuvre de Frida Kahlo, dont nous trouvons un type de resonance entre ces deux femmes emblematiques : toutes les deux ont reflete et influence les epoques et le Zeitgeist social (esprit du temps) au cours desquels elles ont vecu et travaille ».

Schiaparelli a declare avoir « invente » ses robes et s’etre connaître pour l’elegance et l’audace de ses creations, associees a son magnifique travail de couturiere – fusion d’idees nouvelles et de savoir-faire  traditionnel. Ses creations peuvent evoquer les tableaux de Dali car associant la precision de la renaissance a une imagination feconde. Leur mode et leur art ont enchante autant que scandalise. Par ailleurs, leur vision onirique etait une marque de fabrique de leur collaboration ; leurs œuvres ont incarne un sentiment de liberte rare, egayant ainsi la culture d’une periode tumultueuse.

En 1954, Schiaparelli a ferme sa maison de couture pour se consacrer a l’ecriture de son autobiographie – Shocking Life – ecrite a la 3e personne, tout comme l’autobiographie de Dali., la Maison Schiaparelli a ouvert de nouveau ses portes en 2012, au 21 place Vendôme a Paris, l’endroit meme qu’avait quitte Elsa Schiaparelli presque six decennies plus tot. Aujourd’hui, la Maison Schiaparelli perpetue l’heritage de la couturiere en creant des collections d’une feminite contemporaine seduisant aussi bien les actrices d’Hollywood que des clientes privees du monde entier. Une selection de ces nouvelles creations, y compris des accessoires de mode et des bijoux, sera presentee lors de cette exposition.

Le musee Dali celebrera l’exposition au cours d’une soiree de gala et d’un defile de mode faisant voyager la Haute Couture parisienne dans le centre-ville de St. Petersburg. L’evenement offrira un aperçu aux clients de l’univers secret de la haute couture. Le samedi 14 octobre 2017, la soiree débutera par un defile de mode presentant les creations actuelles de Schiaparelli et sera suivie d’un dîner de gala. Un brunch sera organise le lendemain, le dimanche. Les billets pour ces deux evenements seront bientot disponibles; pour en etre informe, vous pouvez vous inscrire aux alertes sur  TheDali.org/Schiaparelli.

D’autres evenements auront egalement lieu tout au long de cette exposition. Dali and Schiaparelli se deroulera jusqu’au 14 janvier 2018, et sera suivie par le vernissage de l’exposition Dali and Duchamp, qui debutera au musee Dali, le 10 fevrier 2018.

L’exposition Dali and Schiaparelli sera assortie d’une serie d’essais ecrits par Dilys Blum, conservateur des costumes et textiles du musee des beaux-arts de Philadelphie ; William Jeffett, conservateur des expositions du musee Dali ; Hank Hine, directeur du musee Dali et John William Barger III, consultant en art.
