Elsa Schiaparelli


An original gouache painting set inspired by Elsa Schiaparelli. Elsa was a great artist and couturier who is best known for her unrestrained avant guard designs. I have always been fascinated by her work. The gloves are hand made paper with a gold foil details. The gloves are inspired by an Elsa creation. I love how the gold catches the light.
