A Bright New Decade
Daisy Fellowes - “A Molotov cocktail in a Mainboucher suit,” was a notorious bad girl: dosing her ballet teacher, editing the French Harper’s Bazaar, and throwing parties to which she only invited pairs of mortal enemies.
Daisy was a client of Cartier and Schiaparelli; one of her purchases from Cartier was the bright pink Tête de Bélier (a 17.47 carat diamond) which Daisy wore to her next meeting with Schiaparelli.
Schiaparelli later wrote about the bright pink color, “[it] flashed in front of my eyes. Bright, impossible, becoming, life giving, like all the lights and birds and fish in the world together, a color of China and Peru but not of the West- a shocking color, pure and undiluted.”
This year, inspiration comes from Daisy Fellowes, who wore whatever the f*ck she wanted and never apologized, and from Shocking Pink. May 2020 be bright, impossible, becoming, AND life giving.
