Discover Elie Saab‘s Spring Summer 2020 collection, inspired by the spirit of Savanna, designed for free-spirited and independent women with graceful elegance, presented on Saturday, September 28th, during the recently finished Paris Fashion Week.
“A reflection of the diversity that animates the great savannas of Africa, the collection features an array of styles to suit the ever-changing moods and activities the journey may entail. From crisp shirt-dresses and jackets, with utilitarian pockets and gold grommet styling, to more romantic jumpsuits and long flowy dresses embellished with signature beading and accentuated necklines, every piece highlights the feminine silhouette, as well as a ladylike approach to adventure.
Throughout the collection, a play on volumes is apparent as lace and taffeta sleeves are puffed up, mousseline pleats and draped satin bring movement to long skirts and dresses, with crepe and organza adding touches of playful frilling.
With their long, yet light and waving in the wind cuts, capes and caftans feature in a colourful geometric print, inspired by both tribal art and the breath-taking views of the vast African plains. The overall colour palette sees pale safari-inspired hues and earth tones mix seamlessly with stronger reds, blues and yellows that come in as block-coloured looks.“
