I asked myself this week, ‘what would Couture be without Elie Saab?’ Well, it would still be just that, but the fashion house amplifies the fantasy we experience during Couture Week. Every model who walks on the Elie Saab runway looks as though they have just finished the most luxurious editorial and taken the garments home.
Jewel-tones and metallics dominated the runway at Elie Saab: sapphire satin, crystal flower embellishments and endless amounts of gold.
The accessories also commanded the audience’s attention. Many of the ensembles featured matching headbands which could potentially become a huge trend. Accompanying earrings, bracelets and necklaces were large in size and glimmer.
Elie Saab’s SS17 Couture collection sells the dream of material success and shows off the beauty that money can buy you with grace.
