IL GRANDE VETRO DI FRANCESCO VEZZOLI (AFTER LEONOR FINI)

by Francesco Vezzoli

In 1937, fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli launched her perfume “Shocking,” whose bottle was designed by artist Leonor Fini. Fini shaped the bottle like a dressmaker’s mannequin, taking inspiration from the curves of the Hollywood actress Mae West. Schiaparelli chose a shocking pink colour for the packaging and Francesco Vezzoli with this work pays homage to this iconic perfume and to the three astonishing women behind it.
