No one does feminine fashion as breathtakingly as Elie Saab does. We always expect couture-like designs from the Lebanese fashion designer no matter it’s a haute couture presentation, spring or summer collections or ones designed for the in-between seasons. The Elie Saab pre-fall 2015 collection came up to our expectations and our eyes were pleased at the sight of these divine, totally out-of-this-world dresses and separates. For the new transitional season, the designer wanted to break the common rules and bring something totally unexpected as to what we are used to seeing. As he said: “Pre-collections are becoming increasingly important for the brand. Our customers are constantly looking for standout and unique pieces.”
“Folk fantasy with modern nomad in mind” is the theme of the brand-new Elie Saab pre-fall 2015 collection, which brings luxurious floral patterns and embroidery, dresses with breathtaking full skirts, lots of fine lace, harvest inspirations and luxurious fur. Whether it’s a little black dress, some tailored trousers or a refined gown, every single piece in the collection seems to have been made with special and luxurious occasions in mind, and they all target those classy women with an exquisite taste who have multiple occasions to sport them.
For the undeniably luxurious appeal Saab picked only rich colors for his designs, from the timeless black and red to juicy purple. There were also pieces drenched in soft dusty pink shade that looked so sober and elegant. It was the shade of a strappy beaded gown with a thin belt on the waist, a full skirt dress teamed with a little fur jacket, a similar style only with a shortened length, a sizzling coat with fur sleeves and many other designs that stood out with their exquisite designs and intricate detailing.
The folksy motif was present in each and every design showcased, whether it was a piece featuring fox fur, horsehair or brocade with floral patchwork, whether it was a dress or a chic outerwear designed to make an equally big statement. No wonder, the Elie Saab pre-fall 2015 collection was pretty to bits and the right thing the brand’s customers look for every season.
