After turning heads with Kim Kardashian West's Hulk-like Christmas ensemble, Schiaparelli brings creative flair and plenty more fake ab corsets to its latest offering. The spring summer 2021 collection rebukes the stereotypical princess gowns associated with Couture Week, instead opting for a more playful celebration of the human body.

A bold, clean color palette accented by gold hardware places an emphasis on the pieces' unconventional structures. Pink fabric cascades from one model's hoop earrings into a magnificent evening gown. Creative director Daniel Roseberry's fascination with the human form is apparent, with exaggerated breastplates and gilded appendages protruding from purses, fingers, and shoes. One showstopper is constructed of 100,000 dazzling Swarovski crystals.
