Lebanese designer Elie Saab never ceases to amaze me with his feminine and simply gorgeous gowns. His Couture collection, shown in Paris July 6th, is my absolute favorite of the latest Couture shows; I’m a romantic, I always fall for the dresses fit for a fairy tale princess.
The brand’s signature embellishment of beads and cristals added sparkle to the icy blue, champagne and rose-gold shades of the gowns. What I really love is the subtle fur details that were added, keeping the look light and ethereal. In this collection, fur is used to create a pattern on the light, semi-sheer fabric. Designers are experimenting with fur in new ways that have rarely been explored before: we are far away from full-fur coats!
Now, I just need to cross my fingers for my white knight to win the lottery and buy me one of this decadent creations. But I’ll probably end-up printing the pictures and pinning them on my mood wall…
