Famous for creating glamorous gowns, Elie Saab is one of the go-to names with evening wear perfect for red carpets and A-list parties, however he is turning his attention to more ready-to-wear looks, incorporating the embellishments and finery he uses for his occasion dresses on more casual pieces. The season’s color palette is suitably dreamy, soft pastel shades of pink, yellow and mint green are found in the lineup.
Looking like a modern-day Grace Kelly, the Elie Saab woman has a wardrobe of a trench coat, a relaxed pantsuit with sporty lines and cropped, peplum-finished jackets for her daytime looks. Despite all the ready-to-wear, evening still remains star of the season. Gowns of pleated silk with elegant draping show a more formal side to resort.
