Carina Covets Couture - Elie Saab Fall 2011
Elie Saab has always been one of my favourite couture designers, and although he rarely mixes up his classic style and distinct couture mixture of lace, embellishment, chiffon, nipped in waists and billowing skirts, you can't help but fall in love with practically every look that so elegantly floats down the catwalk.
Following on from my previous Paris Couture Fall 2011 Fashion Week posts and the out-of-this-world Givenchy collection last week, I had very high hopes for Mr Saab's latest Haute Couture offering. The ombre palette for the collection was simply stunning, from a pale silvery-blue first look, to a deep navy finale, and slimmer gowns mixed in with his synonymous full styles gave the whole collection a fresh yet antiqued feel.
