(via The Metropolitan Museum of Art - Hat)
Elsa Schiaparelli’s shoe hat of 1937-38 is the best known of the surrealist pieces made in collaboration with the artist Salvador Dali. The hat derived from a drawing by Dali, which in turn evolved from a 1933 photograph Gala Dali took of her husband wearing a woman’s shoe on his head and another on his right shoulder.
Schiaparelli created her most directly surrealist works with Dali. This includes, in addition to the shoe hat design, the whimsical ‘Tear’ dress and the skeleton dress, both dating from 1938.
