Paris Haute Couture | ELIE SAAB Fall 2014 Couture

"Romantic to the core, there were gowns to sweep you off your feet."

'Palais des Lumières' entitled Elie Saab his Fall/Winter '14/15 Haute Couture collection, which was presented yesterday at Pavillon Cambon Capucines, 46 rue Cambon. As always, it was that kind of a fairytale show, and if there’s one thing that Elie Saab does very well, it’s a fairytale dress. For brides-to-be, or even for brides that were, his are the sorts of dresses that dreams are made of – they’re the ultimate princess fantasy and you can’t help but fall in love with them, simply because they are so exquisite, elaborate and beautiful. Essentially, there’s not a lot not to like – unless of course you’re a tomboy through and through, and in which case it’s probably best to look away now – because they tick all the boxes of “pretty”.

LoL, Andrea 

Yesterday Saab once again achieved what he set out to do. He gave us gowns of the loveliest shades of luminous colors – from pink and pistachio to flesh and pale blue – in combinations of sheer and sprinkled with crystals or pearls to match the base colour beneath. They came mostly long in length and demanding their models to pick up the skirts at the turn of the corner with only a couple of cute short lengths thrown in too, but ravished throughout with embellishment and this lovely tone-on-tone rainbow of colour.

Romantic to the core, these were gowns to sweep you off your feet and in a world where normcore-casual is the zeitgeist of the day, you wouldn’t be able to help but feel amazing in one of these. If you got the chance to wear one that is.
