Yeah,but Elsa never really had that kind of flamboyance in her work;in the sense of just sparkling and causing attention. She had impeccable execution and a purpose in everything she did.

That is why,in terms of mere creativity and vision,she stands out alongside the likes of Chanel and Kawakubo. At least for me that is.

Accessories, including shoes made of monkey-fur (I guess it's safe to blame her for that furry-boot trend :p )...And also a photo by ManRay

Great pics, Cerfas! So good, she was!

There's a book by Dilys Blum which contains even more wonderful pics (but rather dull literature IMO) on Amazon..Nice coffee-table book..I would try to scan pics, but the book is too big..Hmmm..
