PFW – Elie Saab S/S 2013 collection
A star-studded front row is typical of any well-known designer, but Elie Saab had an interesting mix this year: Taylor Swift, Alain Delon, and Rachel Zoe.
Elie Saab’s collections are classically ethereal and soft. He designed, yet again, a sophisticated and perfectly consistent show. Bright blues opened the show and transcended into light pinks and whites. Saab also incorporated colourful watercolour looking prints into long maxi dresses with sharp black lines. Chiffon gowns with touches of lace and sprinkles of clear sequins created an old Hollywood feel. Beautiful silhouettes were ultra-flattering. The same gowns then came down the runway as knee-length forms. Saab also featured structured and vibrantly coloured handbags.
There is a piece in this collection for women of all ages. This collection is for the woman who has a place to go, always on the move, yet always looking fabulous. Expect to see these gowns on the red carpet; they are star dresses fit for the ultimate movie star.
