There’s a groundswell of pure drop-dead gorgeousness happening at Elie Saab. As if there’s been a seismic as well as a tantric sexy shift.
Elie has added svelte, sultry and contemporary elegant goth to his usual sophisticated array of gowns. This is the moment that Elie changes up a gear before pressing full throttle. Letting the fashion world and his competitors see that ES can still play it to the max.
As well as the mood change, the styling change is dynamic. Punched leather and guipure lace – yes! With , additional fringing and lace cowboy angle boots or leather wellingtons with metallic sequin embroidery? Double yes.
Saab’s AW’16 Pre Collection is so much on point, that he could rattle a few of the big wigs cages. Little A-line shifts in pretty colours and beautiful black trumpet-sleeved peplum shirts tick the boxes. The more trad ES customer may have issue with the shoe selection but all those funky, forward-thinking, fash types will have these as well as a fair selection of this newer, vibe-ier, slicker line of Saab on their seasonal wish-list. Oscars as well as glam Glasto worthy.
