Elie Saab Couture Fall 2017 Collection at Haute Couture PFW

Elie Saab’s work is the perfect example of the words haute couture. He is the designer that doesn’t enjoy working on daywear but instead creates dresses that have the “wow” factor and leave everyone breathless. For his Couture Fall 2017 Collection, the designer got inspired by the medieval times and warrior queens. Even his show notes carried the same message: “fallen kings, defeated by a fearless and heroic sisterhood . . . bright and brave warrior queens they were, are, and forever will be.”

According to the official Instagram of the brand  “The haute couture collection captures the opulence and wild beauty of medieval times, and translate it into fiercely elegant feminine silhouettes.”.

The Lebanese couturier loves to play with different fabrics. The collection features various fabrics, including tulle, velvet, satin, fabrics with rich embroideries and embellishments, amazing patterns and sequins. The embellishment is done in many ways and patterns, but the color that is most prominent is the gold one. On the other hand, the heavy materials in rich dark colors give a dark, but very enchanting vibe to the Fall Couture 2017 Collection.

Saab accessorized his medieval queens with embellished headbands. According to the hairstylist Orlando Pita, the looks were inspired by the cult series  “Game of Thrones”. The models flaunted loose waves and braids that represent femininity, and headbands as crowns that represent power. The makeup was gentle, with golden, bronze, pink and yellow tones, that made the models look just like real goddesses.
