Schiaparelli's Ready To Wear Fall 2022/23 collection takes inspiration from how art becomes enacted through creative mediums within the realm of haute couture. This enactment specifically finds itself immersed amongst the collection's being as these abstractions further exert themselves in reality and the fashion house's evolution as a contemporary luxury brand. The collection's gentle and intense garments span a color palette filled with ebony, white, and signature Schiaparelli gold, are not its singular focus, and more so the pieces silhouettes and couturier itself.

In a press statement to V, Artistic Director Daniel Roseberry describes the Schiaparelli's Ready To Wear Fall 2022/23 aim and how this purpose resides within the Schiaparelli ethos. "Our goal here was perfection," he states. "-- the kind of perfection born from rigor: What was the perfect dress, the perfect sweater, the perfect coat? I wanted to know not just what made a piece perfect, but what makes it perfectly Schiaparelli." Roseberry goes on to illustrate how one can seek these answers when viewing the collection. "You'll find the answers in pieces like a bias-cut satin slip dress with a plisse soleil bust, or a satin mini dress with hammered gold piercings and black leather lacing, or a recreation of Elsa Schiaparelli's first lamb wool jacquard trompe l'oeil sweaters from 1927 -- recreated here row by row."

Roseberry also expresses its foundation and the concept behind this vision. "I thought a lot about what was the elemental for this collection, and I meant that in two ways -- not only what was fundamental, but what comprised the basic lexicon of the Schiaparelli wardrobe. And so, while planet Schiaparelli is a place of discipline, it's also a place of luxury. Here you have a snow-white shearling coat, dropping past the ankle (complete with a trompe l'oeil corset seamed into the bust, shearling pumps, a faux ermine embroidered wrap top, a floor-sweeping black leather coatdress with articulated anatomical parts, and our signature Secret Bag, reimagined in crocodile, Schiaparelli gold, and embroidered drawings of the season."

As for their redefinition, Roseberry details how the collection's are so. "In fact, the now-iconic codes of the house have been reimagined -- and reinforced -- throughout. My renderings of the dove, the padlock, human anatomy itself -- have been scanned and embroidered in matte cotton yarn onto denim (the most Parisian of houses' nod to America). A leather scrolled from the archives has been directly reproduced into a classic double-breasted coat in jet black wool crepe."
