Mood Board for a Monday | Elsa Schiaparelli

December 14th, 2009

This mood board is inspired by Elsa Schiaparelli, who introduced shocking pink to the fashion world and subsequently, to our color vocabulary. A contemporary of Coco Chanel’s, her creations were heavily influenced by Salvador Dali. Without Elsa, I imagine all of us girly girls would still be wearing pale and neutral pinks.

I love combining hot pink with navy. It gives navy, a color that is most often thought of as very conservative, a refreshing pop of color. It makes it fashionable and stylish. It brightens up what can otherwise be a somber color. Have fun with this palette! It’s a wonderfully bold and glamorous palette for holiday parties.
