Elsa Schiaparelli and Salvador Dali brought together Surrealism and fashion, setting the world ablaze. Schiaparelli created such surrealist-inspired works as her Butterfly Dress and Shocking perfume. They collaborated on astonishing designs including the Lobster Dress, Shoe Hat, and Tear Dress. The Surrealist Lips icon features prominently in both of their work, from Dali's Ruby Lips pin and Mae West Lips Sofa to Schiaparelli's Suit Embroidered with Lips and shocking pink lipstick.
This black silk necktie with pink lips is inspired by Schiaparelli and Dali's surreal and collaborative projects.
