READY-TO-WEAR FALL WINTER 2013-2014 FASHION SHOW
In keeping with modern times the ELIE SAAB woman faces the day with aplomb, wearing a crêpe satin jumpsuit, high-waisted trousers and sheer silk chiffon blouses.
By day she exudes strength in a satin jumpsuit or high-waisted trousers and transparent blouse.
An androgynous undercurrent runs through the collection – masculine tailoring as inspiration is evident everywhere.
Clean, strong lines announce themselves in the satin Smoking, while a black and white narrative mingles confidently among the volumes of matt fabrics and hues of navy, petrol blue and chartreuse yellow. Dresses are knee-length with a peplum defined waist.
The graphic lines, key to this season’s creations, happily yield, though, to the transparency and shapely cut-outs, or intricate, decorative flourishes embroidered in silk, mohair, velvet, broderie anglaise and sequins.
At night a more feminine side comes out to play. Poured into delicate devoré, the ELIE SAAB woman transforms into a silver-screen icon.
Like slender vines, bands of lace wind suggestively around the body and underscore the transparency that reveals itself again.
