PLAYLIST #13 FALLEN SNOW

The perfect recipe for the sound of 2015: a soothing voice, eclectic beats and sweet melodies like those found in this year’s latest discovery, Vallis Alps, or in ‘Window’, the first song from HVOBs upcoming album. Soft and hypnotic like fallen snow.

Blue Escapade Episode 1 with ELIE SAAB Le Parfum Resort Collection

Blue Escapade
Episode 1
with ELIE SAAB Le Parfum Resort Collection

The Light of Now travels to the French Riviera, visiting three exclusive onshore destinations along the way.
Dive into the blue with ELIE SAAB Le Parfum Resort Collection, a limited edition scent, an invitation to escape.

A Mediterrean breeze lifts the train of a vibrant blue dress. With equal grace, yachts glide along the crystalline sea, reflecting light into liquid azure and gold. Mandarin and fig sweeten the air, as orange blossom and jasmine draw the olfactive signature of ELIE SAAB Le Parfum, touched with the exotic floral of frangipani.

Resort 1

Eventually arriving on the coast of Cannes for the International Film Festival, a three-part escapade along the French Riviera leads to a hidden cove on Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, to the contemporary terrace of La Réserve palace hotel yet begins here at a private villa.
Nestled between lush exotic gardens and a clear blue sky, La Villa Maria Serena is an immaculate frame for moments of classicism and grace bathed in Mediterranean light.

Visions of Beauty
#chasingadream

The ELIE SAAB Haute Couture Spring Summer 2015 collection expresses the pursuit of a dream in an orchestration of soft hues, scintillating light and an elegance that eludes time.

She is a vision of refinement and cosmopolitan allure. Gowns come alive with her movements, as powder-soft plumage and appliqué prints, like petals, flutter with delicacy and a certain ‘douceur de vivre’ inspired by the grace of the women of Beirut, past and present.

The silhouettes are ethereal in full-length gowns, short A-line dresses as well as opulent pantsuits of elaborate beading that evoke the lively energy of Beirut in the sixties.

Like the sun upon the Mediterranean Sea, accents of gold thread embroidery offset a temperate color palette of green, blue, pink and powdered ivory underscored by black in evening glamour.

Tulip petals appear throughout the collection in whispers of hue, form and interpretation, as a motif linked to personal memories of Elie Saab – a vision of his mother in an evening gown of tulips printed on silk.

The triumph of an ideal appears in form of the final wedding gown, glimmering with embellishment upon layers of blushed tones, a vision of beauty conceived in a dream… #chasingadream

BEIRUT, CHASING A DREAM

moments of light

BEIRUT, CHASING A DREAM

Discover the inspiration behind the Haute Couture Spring Summer 2015 collection through the words and vision of Elie Saab. A tribute to Beirut and all its beauty.

A riviera in the levant

Une riviera en orient

A beautiful memory of Beirut often visits me in a dream. A loving, giving and tolerant Beirut. A glamorous one too. A beautiful memory that never ceased to inspire me - that inspired this collection. This is a tribute to the city that I love. My Beirut.
Looking back at the eventful history of Lebanon, through its flourishing periods and its downfalls, I feel hopeful, I feel grateful.


This is a tribute to the city that I love. My Beirut.



I know for certain that the Beirut of my dreams will forever be alive, magnetic, festive and charming.


Vivid images overtake me: the golden age of the 60’s. The typical elegance of the Beirut woman. Distressing times quickly forgotten. The glorious reconstruction of the 90’s. Ups and downs. A dream that gets lost, sometimes, before emerging again, always stronger. And immortal. When these images overtake me I know for certain that the Beirut of my dreams will forever be alive, magnetic, festive and charming. I know for certain that I want to contribute to its glory. And when I close my eyes and think of Beirut, I know for certain that this dream is mine.

A lifestyle

Un art de vivre

When I sit back and reflect on my journey, I’m always transported to the city where I was born, somewhere between the Mediterranean Sea and the mountains. Back then, Beirut seemed to be constantly adorned for a party that would never end. I was instantly enthralled by beauty and wanted to ensure it remained untainted.


I was instantly enthralled by beauty and wanted to ensure it remained untainted.



With every new collection I conceived, the striking image of my mother in this tulip print silk dress reappeared endlessly.


To this day, I’m still enchanted by a clear vision: my mother in an evening gown. Curved at the waist. Flared like a corolla. Tulips printed on silk. A vision that fuelled my flare as a designer. And with every new collection I conceived, the striking image of my mother in this tulip print silk dress reappeared endlessly.

Thank you

Merci

These memories and Beirut were the steppingstone of my passion for design. It was these things, along with the courage, the grace and the elegance of the women of my city that influenced the person I am today. And if there were to be a message behind my couture collection, it would be: thank you.


If there were to be a message behind my couture collection, it would be: thank you.
