Elie Saab’s show this year was in a huge tent set up in the Jardin des Tuileries. As I walked through the ornate gates from Place de la Concord, I could see that the fashion elite had come out for this show. There were paparazzi everywhere snapping photos of well dressed people hurrying into the venue.
The show started out with a few nice black pieces comprised of high waisted black pencil skirts and tight little back dresses paired with a skinny patent black belt (this years must have accessory).
Deep plum colored pieces and floral flowing dresses then made their way down the catwalk. Wool suits made in the beautiful rich plum color were beautiful paired with Mary Jane inspired heels. The collection took a turn in direction with all red pieces including dresses with high front slits, deep V necks, wrap tops and dresses. Again, most of which were finished with a skinny belt.
This is when the show really started to get exciting, in my opinion. Beautiful, sparkling sequined dresses made their way down the catwalk flowing along the floor behind the model as she walked. A beautiful plum color sparkled in the stage lights followed by cream and black sequined pieces. The sequin dresses were elegant, and sophisticated.
The show continued on with beautiful classic pieces in cream and black. Wool suits paired with little clutch bags were modern with a classic touch. Overall, Elie Saab showed a beautiful collection full of sparkle and elegance.
Classic and elegant are best best words to describe Elie Saab’s collection shown at Paris Fashion Week. When my invitation to the Elie Saab show arrived in the mail, I couldn’t believe that I was lucky enough to be attending this show. I have admired Elie Saab’s collections ever since I came across his Haute Couture collection a few years ago. There is always a timeless elegance to his creations, and this show was no exception.
