MAKING EVERY woman a queen: Elie Saab SS19 continued the designer’s quest to celebrate femininity, while embracing the palette of blossoming colours. From sumptuous evening dresses to slightly more relaxed and up-to-date outfits, the collection is an oasis of gracefulness at this Paris Fashion Week.
Lace was the main character of this spectacle: delicately wrapped over modern silhouettes, it added a soft hint of intimacy and seductiveness – just enough to captivate everyone in the room. Elie Saab pays homage to the nature’s flora and fauna by adding flower embroideries and animal prints to the collection – after all, femininity comes from within the nature. By playing with an array of vivid colours and prints, the collection celebrates the wild spirit of a woman, while honouring her sensuality and elegance.
The devil always lies in the detail – and in case of Elie Saab – the accessories amplified the overall chic and sophistication. An elegant touch of France were the silk scarves wrapped around models’ necks; and the studded leather belts around the flowing dresses, at first unnoticeable, added strength to the look.
As the brand has an unbeatable reputation in making women’s dreams come true, from extravagant gowns to sensual and romantic dresses, Elie Saab extended this tradition to the SS19 – the breathtaking display of sheer fabrics and dreamy prints will undoubtedly stay in our minds and hearts.
