Couture Season is upon us again and where better to begin than the atelier of Lebanese designer Georges Hobeika. He takes a page out of the Impressionist era for Fall 2014, inspired by the florid works of Claude Monet. Hand embroidered flowers burgeoned upon an aquatic blue set of dresses, polished off in burnished metallics in turquoise and aquamarine.
Lace, chiffon, tulle and organza added drama to the weighty dresses with exaggerated hoop skirts, all decadently shimmering with ornate beadwork. Bodices where corseted and skirts were flaired out, revering the feminine silhouette. Glazed chocolate brown, mink and dainty cream gowns were intricately embellished in column and mermaid shapes.
A blaze of cherry red gowns commanded attention with sweeping skirts and beautifully designed necklines. Floor-gliding capes and cropped textured boleros wrapped up the exquisite cocktail looks and jumpsuits. Kiddie couture dresses provided a quaint touch to this outstanding range.
This is the gracefully breathtaking Georges Hobeika Fall 2014 Couture Collection.
