This small-format book still manages to include many photos of the designer and her creations. Schiaparelli's rise to fame and her influence on the fashion world is well charted and her story is told in an easy to read style. It has encouraged me to read the designers autobiography and other works about her. Well worth it!

I'm a huge fan of Schiaparelli, and this little book is a fantastic overview of her life and work. For such a dinky book there is so much information and lots of fabulous pictures, both of original garments and contemporary illustrations. Any Schiap fan or fashion devotee should get this!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Little Book of Schiaparelli 24 May 2012
By Lilly Ford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Lately there has been a rising interest in Schiaparelli's designs, and this new book is a welcomed addition.
It is a little book as the title implies, but it is well-made and printed on high-quality paper.
The book serves as a concise illustrated introduction to Schiaparelli's design philosophy, but I cannot comment on the text, as I've not started reading it yet.
The book is heavily illustrated with a beautiful mix of archival and contemporary photos showing the garments' beauty and colorfulness.
This is a recommended addition to any fashion library, another highly recommended book is the one recently published by the Metropolitan Museum about Prada and Schiaparelli.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elsa 8 Feb. 2014
By Carol Stevenson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A beautiful little book full of colored photos of some of the most beautiful fashions ever! Elsa Schiaparelli was a genious way before her time. I can't believe I have never heard any of today's stars on the Red Carpet say "I'm wearing vintage Schiaparelli!" I would.
But I'm not a STAR!

Very nice little book on Schiaparelli. There are a lot of better books but if you want a quick read and lovely photos of garments, it's worth the money.
