As Elie Saab promised, so he did. The Lebanese designer enchanted all in Paris with his luxury dresses strewn with brilliant crystals, golden metal belts emphasizing slim silhouettes, chic costumes, a perfect mélange of materials and flamboyant elements in the form of frills and feathers. We have no doubts about who the winner of the Parish Fashion week is!
Elie Saab takes a kind of stance in his creation, that would be of inspiration to many world known designers.
This reality is evident from his outfits at first glance, and it is a great shame, that only a few designers follow in his steps. It isn’t hard to stumble upon an extravagant collection today, but to find one embodied with traditional elements of femininity and elegance? That’s as hard as finding a needle in a haystack or to eat twenty cakes a day, and wear a size zero!
The Haute Couture Spring 2019 is accompanied with breath-taking dresses in shades of luxury gold and silver, sea blue, pink, red or soft white. The minimalistic outfits of the collection, of which there aren’t many, are without exception decorated by a more bold element – most often high side slits, or a low-cut neckline or an emphatic clasp. But most models look like real-life mermaids in the designer Elie Saab’s metallic, shiny outfits.
Which outfit intrigued us the most this time? The risqué glittering bodysuit, which the designer complemented during the fashion show with a long train or a stylish jacket. Although but a handful of people will be bold enough to wear this outfit, it has an irreplaceable place in the collection!
Here, they’ve arrived at the absolute understanding of a woman as such. No wackiness, provocation or horror. Finally someone understands, what makes a woman beautiful. Hurray!!!
The absolutely most beautiful garment is the one where turquoise is changing into lilac, and then finally disappearing into a champagne coloured skirt. A low-cut V neck line, perfectly supplemented with a belt decorated with a semiprecious stone, and the whole outfit is improved with practical pockets on either side. One really can’t forget such a garment, and I believe that it will capture everyone’s attention with its beauty. What is the ideal occasion to bring it to? From my point of view, it would have to be a very special occasion, therefore from an event such as one’s wedding to something like the Oscar awards.
However, what took me by surprise were the wide pant overalls. I’m used to Elie Saab’s Haute Couture garments being very extravagant, and so I see these outfits as a breath of fresh air. My second favourite is, therefore, the cream-coloured overall supplemented with a classic jacket with turquoise-gold appliqués, It reminds me of the business outfits of Samantha Jones in the film ‘Sex and the City’. Oh my, to go to a business meeting in the middle of a sunny summer day... No matter the proposals, I believe they’ll all have been approved beforehand!
