The Resort 2014 collection fuses the graphic lines of the Mod era with the classic elegance that is the signature of the ELIE SAAB woman.
Streamlined silhouettes float with voluminous drapery, revealing transparent lace and silk chiffon panels.
Color block predominates, appearing in entire panels of color or as a slight flash of contrast, to create a bold statement. Hues are clean and fresh: gardenia, nude, and lavender. Ruby red and black break up the palette, serving as the staple shades.
By day the ELIE SAAB woman is chic in shorter hems and wider volumes than usual. Come cocktail hour, she changes into silk and lace silhouettes with geometric lines, appearing ever bolder. Creating a dramatic entrance, she chooses an evening gown with a spectacular train.
Reflecting the graphic lines of the ready-to-wear, accessories have structured shapes. Metalized leather is laser cut to create geometric details.
Leather handbags with the texture of rubber are juxtaposed with demi-matt calfskin for a modern day look. Stiletto pumps and sandals in exotic skins pop with colour.
Jewellery is metallic and crystallized, twisted into knots that recall the contemporary romance that runs through the collection.
