There are certainly a lot of gardens in Paris, and we all know what a beautiful spring garden looks like. However, there is one, which was hidden from the human eye and has been discovered just recently due to the Elie Saab spring/summer 2014 collection, unveiled at Paris Fashion Week. If you love flowers and even want to look like one of them, than you are the true addressee of this line. Here we see flowers everywhere: from top to bottom and even further.
So, this flower show started with a striking light coral combination of a T-shirt and pants, promising for the continuation to be something worth awing about. And that really proves to be true. Mini and floor length wonders that follow simply take your breath away by their delicate lace designs and super-cute floral appliqués, which are the best solution for those feminine and elegant looks. The bald splits and stunning bateau necklines create sexual and cool looks.
One specific element about the Elie Saab spring/summer 2014 collection is the lingerie bodice put on the top part of some dresses. This is a very resourceful solution to make the influence of femininity more evident. The ruffled details were also there to make the dresses cute and stylish. This line couldn’t do without the halters either. Thus, there came those wonderful and ultra-beautiful pieces of floor and mini lengths topped with halters.
Talking about the flower motives, we also notice the latter being represented via floral prints as well. Though the main shapes of the pieces remained basically the same as the fabrics and the prints changed, this was hardly noticeable due to the eye-catching effects of the designs chosen individually for each color and pattern.
Talking about the color palette of the Elie Saab spring/summer 2014 collection, we notice a specific coherence between the shifts from domineering white and coral shades to ocean green and classic red, finishing up with mystique and at times shiny black. Walking flowers overtake the runway of Paris this time. So yeah, spring likes gardens full of flowers. So does the Elie Saab spring/summer 2014 collection!
