June 23, 2021
The Elie Saab Resort 2022 collection is ready to accompany these airy and spirited women whatever thrilling revelry they bring to being.
From pleated gowns with thigh-high slits in uplifting pops of mandarin red, green sheen, and electric blue, to black and white sailor-inspired ensembles with gold monogram buttons, each piece exhibits a pronounced femininity that accentuates their strong, playful and sophisticated essences, all in the same breath.
The designer calls out the use of micro embroidery on peek-a-boo pieces that revealed a glimpse of thigh or torso without employing slits or cutouts. He also emphasizes his logo’d accessories, hence the plethora of bags, belts, and whatnot.
Saab’s name is synonymous with big-G glamour and he’s been increasingly trying to translate that into daywear; this effort remains a work in progress, despite the addition of a jogger styled with a baseball cap. Casual is a relative term in Saab World; it’s best translated by a relatively understated and chic look consisting of a metallic knit short-sleeve sweater, with a coordinating striped, pleated skirt light enough to catch a breeze.
