Elie Saab - #PFW Spring 2017

"It's about dancing - the disco, the seventies! I lived through those years and remember my parents then. I Think I took a lot from that decade through them," Elie Saab said, as he loosely twined a thick golden ribbon around Mayowa Nicholas's neck backstage. And in this collection he did, indeed, process many of the tropes of that decade - and then Saab-ified them, hard. Deeply Halston-esque silk gowns in rainbow striped or primary colors made a few cameos. There were also pleated skirts and necklines that plunged as low as Nixon's post-Watergate approval ratings. The '80s leg-of-mutton box was dutifully ticked. Saab contemporized his output a little by teaming some full-tilt sequined gowns with matching sequined baseball caps - and some starry ones too. And the black bomber jackets with split arms and golden ringlet details were sleekly pratique. This was as glitzy, fun, and light as a night spent busting booze moves to the tunes from way back when." -
