"Elsa Schiaparelli brought a completely new and stratlingly original talent to the world of haute couture. Her designs, chic, witty, often surprising, sometimes outrageous, took Paris by storm in the thirties. But her influence was not confined to Paris, or to the thirties: once described as 'the first hippe,' today she could more relevantly be dubbed the Mother of Punk." - from dustjacket. Foreword by Yves Saint Laurent.
