Elie Saab’s acquatic inspiration
Paris Fashion Week Day Six
1 Октября 2014
The sound of the sea breaking over the shore set the tone for Elie Saab’s show, where ocean blue with an illuminated glistening surface gave a fresh feel to the Spring/Summer 2015 collection.
The show opened with naval stripes and bold, digital flower prints – not new to fashion, but pretty and colourful.
Many outfits had both a seashore vibe and a sense of energy, while pieces in beautifully worked lace seemed less influenced by eveningwear and more inspired by a mermaid’s fishnet.
The clothes seemed different from Saab’s more familiar cocktail and evening looks.
The sea was not always calm. There was a Tequila Sunrise of yellow shading to orange and lagoon green.
But whereas the gowns that ended the show might have been mermaid shaped, there were options: flirty, wide-legged shorts and simple streamlined dresses.
But one thing the evening clothes had in common was a sense of movement, as dresses were split open to the thigh, giving a sporty dynamic to the collection.
