We adore Elsa Schiaparelli!
Her best pieces exhibit her
artist's imagination and love
of all things wild...
This Schiaparelli necklace looks so brilliant on, as if you were attending the most outrageous Roman party.
Coming up next, a wonderful example of a Schiaparelli Watermelon Vitrail rhinestone bracelet.
Below is a wonderful new addition to the Pearl Modern shop...
a Watermelon Tourmaline Rhinestone brooch from the 1950s by Schiaparelli. So vibrant!
Below is an excellent 'Stormy Sky' Rhinestone Schiaparelli Necklace from the 1940s to 1950s. The necklace is available here from the Pearl Modern shop.
A perfect Schiaparelli sun hat, just right for a holiday.

"Eating is not merely a material pleasure. Eating well gives a spectacular joy to life and contributes immensely to goodwill and happy companionship. It is of great importance to the morale." - Elsa Schiaparelli
Inspired by Schiaparelli's quote, we prepared this fabulous asparagus recipe from Ursula Ferrigno. The recipe is super-simple but full of complex and beautiful spring flavors.
While getting dizzyingly lost in Florence a few years back, seduced by one amazing vintage Roberta di Camerino bag after another, we stumbled upon a wonderful book shop devoted to culinary tomes, discovering an absolutely gorgeous book of Ursula Ferrigno's entitled "Trattoria: Italian Food for Family & Friends." We highly recommend it.
