Elie Saab: Ready-to-wear 2017

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.
