We are surprised that one of our favorite surrealist painter, Buenos Aires born Leonora Fini (1907 – 1996) designed perfume bottle for amazing French fashion label of Elsa Shiaparelli.
Fini who was born in Argentina and was raised in Italy, belongs to younger generation of surrealist pioneers. Her signature imagination presents strong connection of realistic painting with strange iconography and many symbols. When she worked in Paris, she was approached by revolutionary fashion designer and couturier Elsa Shiaparelli to design flacon for her successful Shocking perfume in 1937.
The flacon is a surrealistic feminine object with the woman-shaped bottle inside the glass dome.
