Elie Saab Couture Fall Winter 2014 Paris

Elie Saab had a crystal clear vision for his fall/winter 2014 couture show. He turned his attention towards the majestic beauty of chandeliers. Playing with the idea of warm light refracting through its prisms for his ombré color pallets. Its crystal ball structure reimagined as pearl embellishments on a gown. While his lace was given an iridescent shine as if reflecting the light off of the fixture's sleek surfaces.

It all made for an inviting premise on which Saab sent out a collection of dresses in his now well known silhouettes. Out walked the long sleeve gowns with the nipped-in waists, the above the knee proper cocktail dresses, and the ball gowns with hemlines caressing the catwalk. Each one of them festooned with the show's leitmotif pearl embellishments.

Sometimes Saab was subtle with the beadwork. Just scattering pearls about the waistline of a dress. Or offering a two dimensional alternative by crafting a series of his ensembles with a pearl patterned printed silk. However, in his heart Saab is a sartorial exhibitionist. He wants his gowns, and the women who wear them, to be not just noticed but admired. So a large portion of his show consisted of gowns in lace or tulle festooned with glossy pear embellishments. Sometimes outlining an underlying lace pattern. But more often then not crafting their own ornamental motif on the semi sheer fabrics.

Saab can file this show away as one more success to add to his ever growing repertoire of Cinderella gowns. Ensembles designed to be worn to balls and galas where the sparkling light of countless chandeliers makes everything feel magical.
