Schiaparelli Sleeping

Published in 1941, this advertisement for Schiaparelli’s ‘Sleeping’ perfume was illustrated by Robert Falcucci. Best known as an eccentric couturier with a surrealist style, Elsa Schiaparelli also worked in perfumery, giving birth to some wondrous creations. True to its name, this perfume was intended to be spritzed at night just before the wearer went to bed, which makes the monochrome scheme of this work, with its image of a candle and a twinkling star glimpsed through the curtains, all the more apt.

At VAA we deploy modern technology to preserve these antique illustrations. The uniquely hard-wearing frames we use are designed in Switzerland; their durability results from the process of anodising. Anodising is a surface treatment which protects and decorates aluminium using an anodic oxidation process. As a result of this, these frames are especially resistant to corrosion and heat, protecting this vintage art from wear and tear.
We frame each illustration ourselves in our workshop in Lausanne, Switzerland. The float glass we use is crystal clear with a very flat surface and carefully polished edges. The frames are 32.7 × 42.7cm (12.87″ x 16.81″). The result? We present you with a period illustration- a genuine antique- enclosed by a frame of the highest quality. In this way, we like to think we’re bringing modern technology and antique artistry together.
