Elsa Schiaparelli had a thing for palm trees. The Italian couturier grew up admiring the ones surrounding her home in Rome’s Palazzo Corsini. At 13, she travelled with her father to Tunisia, a country dotted with them, where she would later build a villa. And in 1936, they appeared on a black wool jacket (ordered by Marlene Dietrich) for her winter collection. Revived by Schiaparelli’s present creative director, Bertrand Guyon, for a series celebrating the house’s iconic motifs, the original gold Maison Lesage embroidery now lives on an ivory satin gabardine blazer, paying homage to the designer’s enduring inspiration.
