Scintillating and strong, the Elie Saab Spring 2017 collection evokes the golden age of disco in an effusive mix of pattern, color, texture and tailoring of bold sensuality. Techni-colored stars dance across the collection, found on appliqués, embroidery and prints while a new geometry emerges in a prismatic play of black, white and gold. An ultraglam attitude infuses the collection, blending the lightness of summer with the extravagance of eveningwear, navigating close to the DNA of the House.
Silhouettes are exceptionally fluid and of second-skin texture. Liquid lamé assumes the female form alongside tulle, lurex, leather and silk mousseline. The jumpsuit, an Elie Saab signature, accompanies tailored jackets, capes, bombers and low-cut dresses made for easy movement.
The mosaic of tones and textures continues in exuberant sequin detailing while touches of pleating, high slits, draping and beaded tassels add to the strong visual sensations of the collection and its addictive, urban nightlife appeal. Jet black, cream and gold offset touches of vivid and metallic colours: in tones of blush pink, turquoise, terracotta, fuchsia, muted green and electric red.
Elie Saab Eyewear debuts this season with a collection of sunglasses to capture the mood with a color-tinted perspective in generous and feminine forms.
The House’s iconic Le 31 handbag is animated with graphic stars in a patchwork of embossed leather. Touches of gold weave throughout the accessories with plaiting, chains, caging, and metallic fringes to animate bags and shoes like lines of falling stars. Jewelry is bold, brilliant and made for mixing.
With a gilded, electric energy and pure charisma, go backstage to discover the Elie Saab Spring 2017 collection representing a fresh fall of stardust, a new era of easy glamour.
