With a Madison Avenue store in the works for 2017, Elie Saab looks to the Big Apple as the main inspiration for his latest Haute Couture Autumn-Winter 2016/2017 collection.
Fresh yet timeless, the collection features alluring looks with accentuated femininity through silhouettes that are influenced by the mid-century era when European style fused with the city’s melting pot and its fast-paced essence and edge, through rounded shoulders, slim bodices and expressive, voluminous skirts. Draping and luxurious details of embroidery, plumage and fur evoke moments in a city’s rhythm when the sky lights up with energy and the streets with elegance, as evening begins to descend. Colour palettes of rose, plum, beige, and jasmine contrast shades of blue, cobalt and black.
Here are our top 15 looks from the collection:
