Fashion designers unveiled their latest couture creations last week in Paris and one of the names that showed off the unmatchable beauty of haute couture is Elie Saab. Elie Saab’s pre-fall 2013 line seems to take a noticeably different approach to fashion compared to the Elie Saab’s spring 2013 couture collection. The resort 2013 collection showed off a totally new side of Elie Saab, a more urban chic, daywear appropriate collection with a business chic vibe.
Now, urban doesn’t mean lacking glamor as this is Elie Saab’s trademark and Elie Saab’s pre-fall 2013 collection is surely packing that high-end elegance and refinement that helped push the label to international recognition. Simplicity is the path to style when it comes to the pre-fall 2013 season and this simplicity was brought by Elie Saab under the form of business-chic garments and cocktail perfect dresses constructed out of luxurious draping fabrics that looked exquisite.
The collection features classic cut trousers brought out of the boring zone with the help of a sexy see-through blouse and an impeccably tailored trench coat. The juxtaposition of masculine elements and ultra-feminine accents brought by the classic cut blazers paired with stylish above-the-knee cut flare dresses gave the collection a far-from-sombre vibe, a vintage vibe that felt inspiring. Wearable? Totally! So, we’ll definitely see a lot of these lovely 70s style suits, blazers and classic cut trousers combos in the upcoming season!
Considering the fact Elie Saab is portrayed as a fashion guru when it comes to dress designs, the Elie Saab pre-fall 2013 collection couldn’t have missed out on the element that makes women weak at the knees. Variety dominates the dresses and skirts displayed in the collection and the simplicity of the fabrics is balanced by the elegance of the cuts, making the designs perfect for any occasion. From designs shaped to the form of the feminine silhouette to elegant peplum dresses, tunic-inspired dresses and elegant floor-length gowns, the collection featured designs that went from cocktail ready to red-carpet diva. Plunging decolletages, stylish slits and mesh insertions gave the dresses a touch of sexiness capable of sparking addiction!
