One of Elsa Schiaparelli's surrealist themes relives in the F / W 2013 collections

The famous exhibition 'Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations', which will be held until August at the Metropolitan Museum in New York, has influenced several designers and explores surrealist concepts. Surrealism, an artistic movement belonging to the historical avant-gardes of the early twentieth century, was one of the recurring themes in Elsa Schiapparelli's collections that arose in part from the collaboration with her friend Salvador Dalì. It is no coincidence that two New York designers have fun with unusual, extravagant and fun clothes for the next autumn-winter 2012/13 season.

Diane von Furstenberg is synonymous with chic up-town, with dresses that are always perfect for any social and elegant occasion. Eccentric but always smart dressing is also added to this collection, with a dress created by inlays in the shape of hands in a positive-negative game.

For the Mulleavy sisters of Rodarte it is a fact to be influenced by art in their collections full of research and experimentation. A multitude of hands moves the all-over print of the pale blue dress made with layers of chiffon and beaded embroidery.

Artistic and elegant, two adjectives that for the next winter season can be used in a single sentence.
