Schiaparelli’s Seaside Pop-up in Monaco Features Sailor Stripes, Crab Claw Earrings and That Iconic Lobster

SHELL SHOCK: Schiaparelli is heading to the seaside.

The Paris-based fashion brand is opening a temporary boutique at the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo in Monaco on Saturday, featuring a day-to-evening wardrobe tailor-made for the French Riviera.

The 1,075-square-foot space on the patio of the hotel, considered a jewel of Belle Époque architecture, will carry creative director Daniel Roseberry’s spring 2024 ready-to-wear, accessories, shoes, jewelry and leather goods, including a selection of exclusive creations.

The design of the boutique, set to remain open until Sept. 30, is inspired by the architecture of the historic Schiaparelli salons in Paris and the nautical theme of the season, Schiap at Sea. Chairs and sofas feature a hand-painted blue and white motif that is also used in some of the looks on sale.

The collection features sailor stripes, fish scale embroidery, crab claw earrings, handmade gold ceramic shell necklaces and a 3D lobster on a skirt — a reference to the famous lobster dress created by founder Elsa Schiaparelli and Surrealist artist Salvador Dalí in 1937.

Casual options include poplins and denim in sand and sky colors, instead of the brand’s signature shocking pink; Toes sneakers in canvas with gold toe molding, and a raffia version of the Face bag.

Schiaparelli also offers an array of eveningwear including velvet, silk or jersey gowns accented with gold hardware, or tuxedos and embroidered bolero jackets.

The brand has only five retail points of distribution, including its salon at 21 Place Vendôme and shops-in-shop at Harrods department store in London; Bergdorf Goodman in New York City, and the Neiman Marcus flagships in Dallas and Beverly Hills.
