Born in Texas and 33 years old, Daniel Roseberry, who spent more than 10 years alongside Thom Browne at the head of the men's and women's collections, will breathe a bold and avant-garde creative vision into the House of the Place Vendôme, as did its founder, Elsa Schiaparelli, whose unconventional creative heritage is steeped in the history of fashion.
“It is my great honor and my joy to pick up where Mme. Schiaparelli left off some 85 years ago. Schiaparelli was a master of the modern; her work reflected the chaos and hope of the turbulent era in which she lived. Today, we find ourselves asking similarly big, identity-shaping questions of our own: What does art look like? What is identity? How do we dress for the end of the world?
Schiaparelli answered these questions with candor and humor, but one of her greatest legacies may be her commitment to fantasy, her understanding that we need fantasy in complicated times. I want to offer my own answers to these questions, and offer a fantasy—a dream—that feels relevant, and necessary, for today.
It is my privilege to collaborate with the astonishing talents of the atelier and in the traditions of haute couture to carry the legend and myth of this storied house into the future.“ said Daniel Roseberry.
Diego Della Valle, owner of Maison Schiaparelli said, ”I am delighted to welcome Daniel Roseberry at Schiaparelli House. His modern and innovative creative vision and its multiple talents will allow the House to deploy all of its activities in respect of this unique heritage that has made Schiaparelli a revolutionary brand.“
