Paris Couture Spring/Summer 2017 Fashion Week: Elie Saab

Paris Couture Spring/Summer 2017 Fashion Week took place this week and OB Fashion is reporting only on our favourite collections/designers.

One of the delights of fashion week is Lebanese designer Elie Saab’s elaborate show notes. He compiles an inspiration book for each guest complete with sketches and inspirational photographs. This time the sands and sky of the Sahara were on his mind, as he looked to the glamorous period of post-War Egypt, what he called the “Arab epoch.”

Inspired by stencil art and strong feminist figures, Saab presented a more streamlined shape while lightening up on his signature shimmer. Several looks were embellishment free, instead relying on accessories such as stunning jewels or beaded booties.

Subtle slits morphed into open panels exposing bare legs, perhaps to avoid any awkward Angelina-style thrusts. While there were still a couple of poufy princess dresses among the collection, Saab added several pant looks for more modern ease relying on capes or trains for volume.

Saab has been a red carpet staple since outfitting Halle Berry for her Oscar win in 2002, and surely some of these golden gowns will be seen during awards season.
