Italian fashion house, Schiaparelli has commissioned Dutch film maker Christian Borstlap to re-interpret the essence of Elsa Schiaparelli’s famous firsts into a contemporary animated film.
Throughout her entire life, Elsa Schiaparelli has been an independent strong woman and a daring creative force. Her innovative ideas led her to establish Schiaparelli as an iconic fashion brand in less than 30 years.
From her inventive imagination and revolutionary visions on sportswear, haute couture, art, ordinary-elements-turned-into-elaborate creations, prints, colours, shapes, fashion and fragrances, the House of Schiaparelli has commissioned Dutch film maker Christian Borstlap to re-interpret the essence of Elsa Schiaparelli’s famous firsts into a contemporary animated film.

The Italian brand's much anticipated return to the couture catwalk at Paris Fashion Week came more than half a century after Schiaparelli's final show in 1954, and 40 years after her death.
The film was created by Borstlap’s production company, Part of a Bigger Plan. Dutch company, the Ambassadors were behind the whimsical sound and animation that is featured. The collaboration has previously worked on fashion house films such as the papier peint animation for L’Adventure, a Louis Vuitton pop-up store in Paris.
