The sweet bird of youth was tweeting through the Elie Saab collection — and not just because the blocks of clients were wedded to their cell phones.
Lace and sport were the themes for this designer, better know for sumptuous evening gowns. He had left the glam slam to his couture line, giving the summer 2016 collection striped silk bomber jackets over short lacy skirts — and even sending out an upscale tracksuit.
Add skinny ribbon bows at the neck, raised waists and shorts, and there was a perfect storm of youth. Not to be churlish about Saab turning girly — surely most of these outfits, with longer skirts, are focused as much on mother as daughter?
