Wonderfully stylish 'giraffe neck' choker and clip earrings. This looks so great on especially with an up do, very Audrey Hepburn. From the period when Elsa Schiaparelli was living and working in America. Elsa Schiaparelli [b.1890-d.1973] needs no introduction, being one of the most influential fashion designers of the 20th century. She worked in new and highly original forms, and her work with the Surrrealist artists such as Jean Cocteau, and Salvador Dali is highly prized. In jewellery, early collaborations with Jean Schlumberger and Jean Clement are some of her rarest and cherished designs. Alongside Coco Chanel, she was responsible for some of the greatest creations of the 20th century.
