Elie Saab SS2010
Breaking up with the “red carpet” canons, Elie Saab carries us away into the Aquatic Garden and invites to wake up as a fairy on a flower bed. She is dressed in caressing touches of the warm wind and sprinkling lilac, iridescent in the gentle spring sun. A slender designer’s “ingénue” is the very embodiment of youth, freshness and innocence.
Flowing cascades of double-layered dresses; weightless and flying bouquets gather anew as the body moves. Prints on organza and silk chiffon mingle with satin, blending lace – echoing the last season fad –with clouds of tulle reflecting the designer’s idea of the spring Eden. Short bustier dresses leave shoulders free or complemented with the embroidered boleros. Long slit ball gowns, very natural with no jewelry at all adorned with beautiful straps – the every girl’s dream.
Pearl, powder pink, light Japanese yellow, celadon green and Majorelle blue: borrowing the color palette of the Spring herself, do not be surprised to make water lilies envious!
