The butterfly was the Surrealist symbol for change, particularly from ugly to beautiful. As the caterpillar morphs into the brilliant butterfly, so Elsa Schiaparelli’s designs could transform the ordinary into the extraordinary. The print of this scarf was inspired by Surrealist artists such as Salvador Dali, Max Ernst, and Man Ray, with whom Schiaparelli shared many views.
