1930s Shocking by Schiaparelli

1930s Shocking

1930s Shocking

Inspiration: In 1936, Elsa Schiaparelli launched Shocking in bottles sculpted by Leonor Fini in the shape of a woman’s torso, inspired by Mae West’s tailor’s dummy (hence the tape around the neck) and Dalí paintings.

Year: 1930s

Would you like to contribute pictures – either better than the ones I have or to fill in the gaps? Or perhaps you see information that is missing?

Please leave me a comment and I’ll reply as soon as possible.
