Inspirations Shoe Ring (Inspired by Elsa Schiaparelli's Shoe Hat)

Regular price $380.00

In 1933, Dali was photographed by his wife Gala with one of her slippers balanced on his head. In 1937, he sketched designs for a shoe hat for Schiaparelli, which she featured in her Fall-Winter 1937-38 collection. The hat, shaped like a woman's high heeled shoe, had the heel standing straight up and the toe tilted over the wearer's forehead. This hat was worn by Gala Dali, Schiaparelli herself, and by the Franco-American editor of the French Harper's Bazaar, heiress Daisy Fellowes, who was one of Schiaparelli's best clients.
