Nailed It

Elsa Schiaparelli and Commes des Garçon

A contemporary of Salvador Dalí and Jean Cocteau, Elsa Schiaparelli’s transgressive designs were often the result of a direct collaboration with the surrealists. Schiaparelli’s August 1936 collection, designed alongside  Salvador Dalí, featured suits with pockets that resembled miniature bureau drawers, paired with black suede gloves adorned with red patches of snakeskin to suggest the red colored nails underneath the gloves. In 2009, Commes des Garçon released a selection of loafers, that seemingly revealed the contents underneath the shoe, also showcasing red-painted nails.
