Raise your Eyebrow
Iconoclast designer Elsa Schiaparelli is most remembered for infusing a sense of wit and irony into her designs. The House of Schiaparelli did not cease to exist during the occupation of Paris, however, during this period Schiaparelli herself was in New York and left the designing to her associates who remained in Paris. In 1944, Schiaparelli made her return to Paris to much acclaim and would continue to design until 1954. A photo from 1949 depicts the Schiaparelli eyebrow hat, a red satin cap with a brim that droops, obstructing the face save for an eye-hole. For Vogue Italia’s February 2012 cover, photographer Steven Meisel photographed model Laura Kampmann wearing a similar hat by Ellen Christine Millinery.
