「魚子醬晚禮服，耶路撒冷的朝鮮薊、絲質小甜蘿蔔。」這不是什麼沒頭沒腦的菜單，而是Schiaparelli對本季高訂的註解。接任Schiaparelli設計總監大位，來到第二季的Bertrand Guyon表示，高訂就是要從平凡中創造不平凡，因此，他以Salvador Dalí的畫作「盛大晚宴」（Les Dîners de Gala）為靈感，讓洋蔥、番茄、南瓜等食材，以刺繡的方式，呈現在禮服上，甚至致敬1937年Dalí及Schiaparelli所創造的龍蝦洋裝，整場秀上充滿各式蔬菜及水果，不只眼睛，甚至連胃都有了飽足感。Alexis Mabille則利用單純的黑與白，致敬好萊塢的黃金時代，以及當時女星所呈現永垂不朽的美。設計師表示，不需要過多的顏色，用最簡單的姿態，來呈現自身散發出的美，無論什麼年紀，都有愛自己的權利。««
