Elie Saab Bridal Spring 2018 Collection

The Elie Saab bridal spring 2018 collection was inspired by a garden where everything is in full bloom, but still managed to be soft, charming and striking. The designs featured the opulence we would expect from Elie Saab, who chose to present his third bridal collection in Elizabeth Taylor’s former midtown Manhattan townhouse.

The collection featured 13 pieces that vary clearly reference to the inspiration Elie Saab mentioned for his third bridal collection. Femininity is not a concept that has escaped Elie Saab, his designs, though dripping in splendor at all times, are not unflattering or bulky under the embellishments he includes. This is a brand that delivers glamour and in large shares at that.

Floral motifs and the use of blush in the collection harkened back to Japanese cherry blossoms, a very romantic style and design that always evokes movement even when standing still. Each of the designs had an elevated level of pomp to them, though the impressiveness of the collection as a whole is hard to describe. The mix of glamour and utility with the versatile designs included in the collection is also very fashion forward, and in the Elie Saab bridal spring 2018 collection there were quite a few.

The sheath dress with the detachable skirt is a brilliant option for brides who do not want a reception outfit that is too far removed from the glory of their wedding dress. The long-sleeved jumpsuit that featured tonal crystal embellishments and the accessories were an incredible draw as well.

The jewelry shown in the collection was outstanding – simple but very interesting with unexpected swirls, dips and adjustments. The inclusion of capes did not go unnoticed, though a finely embroidered luxurious cape veil with a floral motif had an inescapable brilliance of its own. The fur shrug was soft and sweet and the unexpected inclusion of eyewear was not distracting, but very cool.

Smooth silhouettes and flowing lines gave a great canvas for the embellishments, keeping the opulence going from head to toe. The variety of necklines and cuts did not diverge all over the place, but managed to keep the consistent romantic, soft and blooming aesthetic throughout.

Starting at $7000 the pieces in this collection are actually designed to be more accessible. The body accentuating designs and always impressive detail work are set to make your walk a 306-degree experience as the embellishments are not focused solely on the front, but extend naturally and beautifully around the back to wow the assembled audience of family and friends from all angles.

This is especially true for the gown featuring the pearl and crystal embellished illusion bodice that continued the sparkling and shimmering design completely around the bodice and dipping into the full tulle skirt.
