Schiaparelli might not have a designer yet, but the label already has a swanky new Paris couture salon in place for when such an occasion arises. The first collection from the label is expected to debut sometime in January, but in the meantime, they've gone a little wild with the decor.
Among other amenities, the salon includes a lobster-shaped chest, a mirrored dining room, and a sphinx sculpture that was in Elsa Schiaparelli's original atelier.
