Fashion inspiration: Elsa Schiaparelli's tromp l'oeil sweaters
There are some really neat things about being a vintage seller. One of my favorite things is researching each garment because some of the information is really neat. As I was listing a 1950s hat in the store, I decided to research the label, Schiaparelli. The Google search turned up images of the coolest tromp l'oeil sweaters that I had ever seen. Elsa Schiaparelli, the designer behind the label, debuted her first sweaters in 1927 featuring surrealist tromp l'oeil images. Very cool! I've included pictures of my favorite Schiaparelli sweaters below and if you want to learn more about the designer and the brand read HERE.
