Schiaparelli Couture Spring Summer 2022

Schiaparelli Haute Couture Spring Summer 2022 – PornHub Follies or “Schiap show”. Review by Eleonora de Gray, Editor-in-Chief of RUNWAY MAGAZINE.

This Haute Couture fashion week started with great sadness – Thierry Mugler left us. The King is dead…. And… Haute Couture fashion week started with Schiaparelli by Texan Daniel Roseberry.

PornHub Follies for Kanye West

Daniel Roseberry’s collection merged the showmanship of the PornHub Follies with the drama of sci-fi…. and looks so well chosen and reinvented from Pierre Cardin and Thierry Mugler, with slight difference that these looks meant for Kanye West.

Old Parisian Haute Couture House Schiaparelli opened its doors and made garments to present to former rapper and PurnHub Producer Kanye West, assumingly that these pieces will soon be used in his production. Daniel Roseberry, drugging behind name of Else Schiaparelli (or Schiapareli with one “l”), already last season proposed his garments to strippers, drag queens for their shows (and not the most elegant ones).

Apparently Daniel Roseberry likes when they say “Ouch”… Although he didn’t introduced “Haute Couture” surreal sex-toys like another Parisian brand (“On Aura Tout Vu”, translated as “We’ve seen it all”) did this season. Schiaparelli is a Haute Couture House with the identity linked to surrealism. So sex-toys should be surreal (tip). Sex-toys were not introduced just yet. We’ll have to wait for the next season.

This season Daniel Roseberry got more than excited as known and renown PornHub Awards Creative director and PornHub Producer, former rapper Kanye West came to his show accompanied by “new flame”, new muse Julia Fox, known for her leading roles in erotic dramas and series, was testament to the brand’s heat.

Kanye West appeared at the Schiaparelli show during Paris Fashion Week with black pantyhose over head, like bank robbers from the 1980s. Kanye West got used to pantyhose, as he wore this “headwear” for different events like football games or glamorous evenings, according to the comments made by Snoop Dogg and Kevin Hart at the New Year show, which made millions of Americans laugh. 


Daniel Roseberry, as a “visionary” marketer, probably already know that pantyhose videos are skyrocketing on PurnHub. So with Kanye West is a win-win situation.

Talking about Kanye West in black pantyhose. There’s probably another explanation to this. He’s probably still desperately tries to match his ex-wife. Kim Kardashian appeared in black outfit made for her by Demna Gvasalia, creative director of Balenciaga, for Met Gala 2021. There were no erotic meaning, but Kanye West took it in whole new level, so as Daniel Roseberry for Schiaparelli.

Schiaparelli Spring Summer 2022 Couture or “Schiap show“

Maybe for the public Schiaparelli show looked like “Haute Couture returns”… but from expert point of view – not so much. Let’s look closely. The gilding on the accessories is not gilding – it’s just a golden paint, no volume, looks “reinvented” or reproduced. Daniel Roseberry in his notes about the show, proudly published on the Schiaparelli web-site, said that the looks he didn’t even draw anything. Of course he didn’t have to – everything was already drawn by Jean Paul Gaultier, Thierry Mugler and Pierre Cardin. He just needed to look at the sketches and make some changes, add accessories, and Bum!.. 3-dimensional!   

Suzy Menkes, known independent fashion expert, called it “Schiap show”. And it sounds like “Cheap”. Cheap show, yes indeed.

In pompous notes to the show Daniel Roseberry wrote: “What felt exciting was something more restrained. Suddenly colour seemed wrong to me. So did volume. All of the tricks that couture designers – including me! – used to communicate – grandeur and craftsmanship – felt hollow.”

Indeed this collection felt hollow, empty. After 2 years thinking about surreal, plunging into the archives of Elsa Schiaparelli, Daniel Roseberry came out only with nothing, so he came to “check” what’s good around.

Daniel Roseberry and Cone-bra of Jean Paul Gaultier

I already expressed my opinion about iconic cone-bra or bullet-bra created by Jean Paul Gaultier for Madonna in 1990s. And it is not clear why Daniel Roseberry reinventing and appropriating this creation. Read more about it in the review about Ready-to-Wear Paris Fashion Week Spring Summer 2022 HERE.

I’m not convinced as I see echoes of Thierry Mugler and Pierre Cardin in this collection. And from the looks of it the volume is not profound – these are just scene costumes, and they can’t represent Parisian elegance. And they probably shouldn’t as they designed not just for Las Vegas but for Kanye West new production.

Here are some other looks.

So this is all about this collection – fake and flat for PornoHub.

Dolce Gabbana Alta Moda Venice 2021

Piazzetta San Marco is the place where visitors to the city were once invited to admire the magnificence of “La Serenissima” and is, accordingly, one of the most celebrated and well-known treasures of Venice.
Special guests like Saweetie, Bebe Rexha, Jennifer Lopez, Sean Combs, Doja Cat, Kris Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, Ciara, Monica Bellucci, Christian Bale, Dame Helen Mirren, Kitty Spencer, and super-rich clients watched the Alta Moda show today at St Mark’s Square, blocked by Venice for this special occasion.
Many stars and rich clients were invited to see and dine during these 3 nights of Alta Moda, Alta Gioielleria and Alta Sartoria, organized in Venezia by Dolce Gabbana. Apart from Jennifer Lopez with Price Tag, Sharon Stone’s campaign shooting with pigeons intervention, thunderstorms and huge hails, rainbows, there’s also something to talk about.
Jennifer Hudson performed Nessun Dorma at the climax of the Dolce Gabbana Alta Moda show in Venice 2021. The show started with the performance of the actors dressed in Commedia Dell’arte characters. It is a theater, performance, so loved by the designers.
Venice represents the perfect harmony of opposites that attract: it is romantic and sensual, melancholic and joyful, rational and visionary, luminous and nocturnal, sacred and profane, dark and golden. And this is the feeling of the Alta Moda 2021 collection.
“Returning to Venice always fills us with unique emotions, which we hold dear in our hearts.
Like a breath held too long that you have to let go, Venice is our dream,” – said Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.
Venice is a shrine to romanticism, a palace of refinement and a sanctuary of extraordinary beauty.
Inspired by Venetian art, culture and splendour, Alta Moda Collection pays homage to the history of Venice and its illustrious artists. Although Dolce Gabbana didn’t honor these artisans, so none of them were announced or praised for fabulous designs and art works presented at Alta Moda and Alta Sartoria.
The collection of 120 pieces was a reproduction of Commedia Dell’arte characters, kaleidoscopic patterns of Murano glass, or the serpentine patterns on the floor of St Mark’s, imaginative cloaks of Casanova, knotted rope as Doge’s dress. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana decided to use colorful wigs for the models to attract young generation to the collection, and some “population” of Los Angeles.
This fabulous show was a triumph of richness of Italian craftsmanship, unfortunately not one atelier who created these magnificent embroideries was mentioned, and provided richest clients of the Dolce Gabbana with a site-specific and unique souvenir…. Unique… might be a little overreach, as many pieces of this Alta Moda collection “traveled” from past years, some dresses “were nothing new”, some pieces somehow became an echo of Valentino Couture Fall Winter 2021-2022 designed by Pierpaolo Piccioli, and some like short velvet dresses were nothing to do here.
Alta Sartoria is the 3d event during this special weekend in Venice. Alta Sartoria – Haute Couture for men. Fabulous artistic work of Venetian artisans is the most spectacular part of the show. Although Dolce Gabbana didn’t honor these artisans, so none of them were announced or praised for fabulous designs and art works presented this weekend.
“Only in Venice!” Probably Zeus or one of the antient gods got jealous ones again about fabulous golden embroideries and riches and expressed his unspeakable wrath to the humans… But the show and rage of ancient gods were so mythological, and so real that the show indeed came like one of the Prometheus stories.
PS. And there’s always a right place to add special review related to the quality and service provided by Dolce Gabbana to the admirers of the brand, who might have a desire to become an owner of one of the pieces of this brand, and still don’t belong to the super-rich crowd invited tonight for Alta Moda 2021 show in Venice.

He was suppose to attend the evening 23 September 2020, the premiere of the film “House of Cardin”, but at that time he was already weakened by coronavirus. Full of life, full of flowers Kenzo Takada was spirited away in the land of beauty and art.

Many people in Paris today expressed their sadness. Kenzo Takada was born in Japan, he came to Paris in January 1965. And he indeed became a national treasure.

I’ve meet him in 2010 during his art exposition in Pierre Cardin gallery. And since then I always felt his support and participation in many fashion and art project we organized. And I’m forever thankful for that.
