Haute Couture Fall Winter 2011-2012 Fashion Show
In the heady iridescence of the sun’s rays, city façades and skyscrapers appear clad in shimmering reflections: architectural lines, glass surfaces and glinting metal compose a multifaceted geometry.
In this urban context, the ELIE SAAB woman is as evanescent as a dream, a vision of lightness draped in tulle, silk chiffon and lace.
Light casts a silvery reflection on silhouettes in a delicate Haute Couture palette of aquamarine, blush, slate blue and brown tinged with bronze.
Her bare back is enveloped by embroidered boleros so light they seem like butterfly wings. At times diffuse, at others encrusted like jewels, embroidery alights on breezy ballerina dresses and princess gowns or showers an evening look in crystal drops.
Lustrous velvet is a recurring theme, underscoring the waist or sprinkled across featherweight embroidery.
Ethereal, innocent and almost nostalgic, ELIE SAAB’s Haute Couture collection appears as a dream with angels in its wake swathed in layers of lace and tulle.
