Elie Saab presented Autumn Winter 2017/18 collection during the fifth day of the ongoing Paris Fashion Week. Inspired by one of ballet’s most iconic scores, Giselle, the collection is a tale of human love crossing into the supernatural realm.
An ethereal lightness uplifts form, mood, and movement amidst a seasonal return to dark romanticism. Fabrics such as tulle, organza and silk chiffon add an intoxicating delicacy to the collection while lace, feathers and embroidered velvet add a textural, sensual blend of innocence and melancholy. Light layering abounds. A shadow of mystery stretches across the collection with diaphanous silhouettes for day and night. – from Elie Saab
