These soleil style earrings are bursting with golden age glamour, and surrealism themes. Reminiscent of Schiaparelli's Le Roy Soleil parfum bottle decorated with an ornate sun, also appearing on the famous shocking pink cape, these surreal, sparkling, suns are Salvador & Schiap approved!
Color/Fabric: Gold plated with clear rhinestones.
Thanks to Schiaparelli & Samarra, the Sun turban was born. Samarra was Lana Turner's character in The Prodigal (1955) as she was mythical and magnificent, draped in gold and pearls. Schiaparelli's zodiac collection of winter 1938-39, also made reference to the Sun King Louis XIV and Apollo, the god of mythology who emerged from the sea and drove his four-horse chariot daily across the sky to represent the rising sun. Her fragrance Le Roy Soleil, released in 1946 to celebrate the end of World War II, came in a Baccarat crystal bottle designed by Salvador Dalí, of course —depicting the ocean’s waves and a Surrealist gold sun, dotted with swallows.
