ELIE SAAB Resort 2016 collection captures an iconic blend of casual sophistication, expressive volumes and a touch of graphic Modernism that California dreams are made of.
Upon easy silhouettes for sunny living, colors are in shades of red cadilac, green sequoia and palm, black softened with seaside tones of gardenia, pink melrose and ocean spray.
A tropical garden comes through in small, colorful flowers and graphic abstractions of the palm leaf that wrap around a beaded bustier and blend in a bold print upon flowing lengths of silk chiffon.
Macramé and English embroidery appear on free-spirited day dresses. Caftan-inspired loosened shapes, bishop sleeves, and sophisticated silk blouses are an interpretation of summer-of-love idealism.
The Poincaré bag finds a new reinterpretation with a smooth leather front in colors that define the collection. A pair of graphic flats accent the season’s easy style in openwork motifs.
From daytime poolside lounging to full-length gowns of Hollywood hilltop glamour, a lush interpretation of West Coast living celebrates sunny climes and timeless style.
