Elie Saab - spring 2013

Fit for an heiress



In a collection named "Heiress", Elie Saab created looks fit for a chic business meeting and a black-tie gala. His designs are consistently in tune with the woman's body, and this season was no exception. Sending waves of models down the runway in monochromatic looks, from electric blue to fuchsia, nude to black, the collection ran the spectrum.

The Saab print this season is a graphic, colorful rendition of neon brushstrokes outlined in black. The designer's use of delicate lace and grosgrain ribbons to highlight the curvature of the waist and hips created beautifully subtle angles. Some of our favorite pieces were the lace gowns, and the structured separates, accented by the designer's new collection of handbags and color-coordinated stilettos.

The handbags were all business, ranging from chic daytime totes to sleek evening clutches, worn across the body or clutched under the wrist. It was a dreamy collection full of instant-glamour pieces, just what we love to see from Elie Saab.
