Elie Saab: Ready-to-wear AW16
Gorgeous gypsies and rock-star chic. These were the driving forces behind Elie Saab, a collection of signature lace and foliate colours reworked for an utterly contemporary woman. Music pumped out live as the models took their turns, like a terribly chic disco filled with supermodels in super clothes having a super time. Silhouettes were airy and fluid – for women who spend winter sunning themselves on the Riviera in exquisite layers of guipure and chantilly, delicately beaded. Kendall Jenner closed the show – who better to personify the dynamic, energetic and instantly-recognisable Elie Saab woman?
