Fashion Flashback: Elsa Schiaparelli’s Shoe Hat

Fashion Reverie looks back at Elsa Schiaparelli’s iconic shoe hat. Heavily influenced by surrealist Salvador Dali and Alberto Giacometti, the shoe hat was Schiaparelli interpretation of a 1933 photograph of Dali’s wife, Gala, with a slippers on her head. The shoe hat was sketched by Dali for Schiaparelli’s 1937-38 fall/winter collection. Schiaparelli’s shoe hat resembled a woman’s high-heeled shoe with the heel pointing upward. Schiaparelli’s shoe hat was worn by Gala Dala and heiress Daisy Fellowes, the editor of French Harper’s Bazaar.

Variations on Schiaparelli’s shoe hat have popped in the collections of French couturier Eric Tibusch, and recently Lady Gaga donned a stiletto shoe hat.
