Elsa Schiaparelli's Private Album

Elsa Schiaparelli’s Private Album

Wouldn’t this be a wonderful gift for any fashion/art/style lover with even the remotest interest in recent history?

Compiled by her granddaughter, Marisa Berenson:

[this] is Schiaparellis own album of photographs of her life starting in Italy when we see her as a very young girl in the early 20th Century …  Ninety per cent of the photographs in this book have never been seen in public before, nor published. They are original studio proof prints by giants of 20th-century photography such as Man Ray, Hoyningen-Huene, Horst, Andre Durst, Baron de Meyer and other notable photographers of the time. None of the writings have been previously published.

Sounds like a real treat for any lucky recipient of such a gift – c.£30 on Amazon: Elsa Schiaparelli’s Private Album.
