The exuberance of Elie Saab Couture was unveiled at Paris Fashion Week yesterday. I am mesmerized by his Fall 2011-12 Collection, which stays true to his opulent design aesthetic. Elie churns out glamourous goddess gowns unlike any other.
His latest range reminded me of the seaside. The aquamarine of early morning sky settling in over the ocean. The crisp whites like heavenly clouds floating above. The sandy shades that catch the sunlight and chocolate brown seaweed that lays upon it. Then there's the shimmering dark blue waves, reflecting off the starry night sky.
Gowns glistened with intricate beadwork, delicately sheer fabric was enlightened by a sea of sequins, and billowy chiffon sailed across the runway like a cool breeze. Ethereal white gowns were sprinkled with pearl-like embellishing.
If I could chose any gown from this collection, it would have to be the first one to the left. I love the sheer beaded fabric and vintage style.
Waists were accentuated by decorative floral motifs. Make up was kept natural with a barely-there look. Hair was swept up in waves.
The collection is one to marvel at, with each gown more beautiful than the next.
Elie Saab has retained his crown as 'King of Couture'.
