Elie Saab: Ready-to-wear 2017

elie saab.jpg

 

After launching a successful Egyptian Haute Couture collection that left us speechless and making a huge appearance for his designs at the Oscars’ red carpet, Elie Saab sandwiched these two events with a dark romantic collection. “I wanted something rich, maybe it is less commercial than before and more dramatic” said Saab. He wanted a “dramatic heroine.

Eveningwear ruled the collection from A to Z, contrary to the previous collection which included hints of street and sporty wear.

This collection was inspired by Giselle, one of the ballet’s most iconic scores. In fact, the collection was pure poetry in motion.  Elie Saab was fully set in a winter mood: The color’s palette navigated among eggplant purple, black, white, powder pink and blue

If you follow Elie Saab, you notice that in each collection he created a marvelous unique pattern: this time he decided to mix blue and purple and come up with a lily print, giving an ethereal lightness. Furthermore,the fabrics varied from velvet, chiffon to organza and lace, adding an intoxicating elegance to the collection.

Layers of tulle and ruffle embellished the models’ bodies as they walked. Lily flower was a tangible motif: It is a tale of youth beauty and sentiment. I absolutely loved this lily-painted leather jacket: Masterpiece._ARC0076

Speaking of flowers, let’s talk about the “ It dress” of this show. No need to describe it.( expecting  to see this on the red carpet)._ARC0843

There were some non-dresses here, including a fitted black suits and embroidered jumpsuit.

Moving to the beauty/ accessories side, the models rocked a black shimmery smokey eye-look. Plus, the skinny velvet scarf was spotted multiple times and the”Single” feather pair of earrings. Finally, the latest Elie Saab’s creation which everyone loved was The jeweled tights.

How does it feel when your favorite designer presents a collection as a  tribute to your country? For those of you who don’t know, I am originally from Egypt. While I was watching the show ( live on Instagram lol), I got goosebumps, literally: These dresses inspired by Egyptian actresses in the 50’s era and Oum Khoulthoum’s song in the background left me speechless. You know why? (more…)

Recently, he launched his resort collection and here is a little review about it. There were seven mini themes nestled within Elie Saab’s Resort collection, but no matter. The through-line was clear: The Seventies Hollywood glamour. We can spot this  from floral palm prints and embroideries in the shape of abstract palm leaves on blouses, dresses and gowns. (more…)

In doing so, he became the 16th person in history to complete the Three Poles Challenge. Last, Maxime is the 6th person in history to complete the Explorers Grand Slam.Since his partnership with Bank Audi on the “Seven Summits Project” in January 2003, it has been one successful expedition after another for Maxime, acquiring experience, knowledge and wisdom, while discovering new limits within him, and ‘Growing Beyond His Potential’ summit after summit.
Recently, on August 5, 2013, Maxime beat the world record in rowing the Indian Ocean.

Inspiration:
Maxime regularly visits school, universities and clubs across the region delivering his presentation entitled: “There is an Everest for Everyone”.On the independance day celebration, Maxime came to our school ” College Saint Maxime”. He showed us a presentation. Each situation he passed through,  he learned something. He said that problems are everywhere, we can’t run away from them but the difference is how u solve the problems.  Face it , think don’t panic. ..Every problem has his own solution. Then, he proved to us that whatever is your dream, by believing AND WORKING HARD  u will do it. Seriously when u see the conditions that he was living in and how these conditions didn’t stop him from achieving his dream, U say that everything is possible. One more thing he said : that failure isn’t the end of the world it’s a chance to learn from our mistakes .. don’t stop and keep going
