Elie Saab #RTW Spring 2015 #PFW

"ELie Saab is never going to send athletic attire down his runway - not even in the sense of clothes for running errands and such. But an unmistakable sport influence fuelled his Spring collection, adding a few new points of interest to his reliably glamorous formula. As usual, Saab's decorative flourishes and finery were informed by an overarching theme, this time titles 'Dive Into the Deep Blue.' There were undulations of encrustations and hemlines that rippled like shorelines. The primary print suggested light reflecting off a koi pond. Lace inserts in blouses and slits in slinky twisted viscose cut the torso like fins. Still there was more to this show than a life aquatic. As for the sporty bits, they played out as lace strips that contoured around the leg from outer hip to inner ankle, swimsuit-inspired dress bodices, and, wait for it, flat sandals. Whether they were a concession to the prevailing winds or an adjustment of his own eye, they confirmed that Saab is not above evolution." -
