Première parution en 1954

Trad. par Henry Muller. Préface de Sophie Fontanel et Elsa Schiaparelli. Illustrations de Christian Bérard

Difficile de faire plus scandaleux que Schiaparelli. Dans la mode comme dans sa vie, « Schiap » a tout osé avant tout le monde. Rien ne la prédestinait pourtant à régner sur le milieu de la mode, jusqu’à devenir la grande rivale de Coco Chanel.
Elle s’installe à Paris en 1927, après son divorce, avec sa très jeune fille, et se lance dans la conception de modèles qui enthousiasment bientôt le Tout-Paris. Ses vêtements extravagants font sensation auprès des femmes célèbres comme Wallis Simpson, Marlene Dietrich, Katharine Hepburn ou encore Lauren Bacall. Elle impressionne aussi le milieu intellectuel de l’époque et se lie notamment avec Jean Cocteau. La légende est née. Jupes culottes, imprimés animaliers, épaulettes, sans oublier son fameux rose so shocking, voilà ce qui fait la patte Schiap.
Shocking, le livre de sa vie, publié originellement en 1954, donne le pouls d’une époque et d’une ville, Paris, où tout semblait possible et où l’irrévérence était un art de vivre. Se dessine au fil des pages le portrait d’une femme immensément libre, féroce et forte de ses failles.
