Trends | Paris Fashion Week: Elie Saab Closes Out PFW with Stellar Show!

First came Louis Vuitton then Miu Miu and finally Elie Saab. On the final day of Paris Fashion Week, the Lebanese designer unveiled yet another stunning collection to his ever anticipating audience.




Staying in sync with the upcoming season’s generous mix of masculine and feminine silhouettes shown on so many runways this month, Saab’s Autumn/Winter 2013 lady is one who wears tuxedo jackets with sharp edges, pants, jumpsuits, and oversized capes, yet is “always beautiful”, as he said backstage, but this time in a “Russian way”.




Feminine touches were added through the sheer layers on the side panels of the outfits, along with short skirts and peplum.




Shortly after, the label’s signature designs- heavily embroidered, lacey, and beaded gowns made their way down the runway, with black, yellow, white, blues, and purples dominating the collection.




It was yet another big show for Elie Saab who proved he could step out of his comfort zone and deliver big on the final day of Paris Fashion Week!

Trends | Paris Fashion Week: Marc Jacobs Delivers Big for Louis Vuitton!

With the entire fashion world camped out in the City of Lights for Paris Fashion Week, the week long event draws to a close today with big names show-casing their Ready to Wear Autumn/Winter 2013 collections.

Louis Vuitton kicked off day 9 with Marc Jacobs unveiling his 3rd collection for the brand in a hotel corridor set that reflected the fashion house’s heritage as a luggage company. Models came out of the closed doors and walked the runway in chiffon tea dresses, boyfriend oversized coats and furs thrown on top.

Menswear fabrics and tweeds were primarily used for the collection, yet the soft curvy dresses and silk slips injected a feminine vibe to it. Supermodel Kate Moss closed out the show in a glamorous blue floor-length gown and matching undergarments in an appearance that surprised most of the audience.

Describing the collection in a few short words, Jacobs said that it reflects “an attitude of getting dressed up only to find the most glamorous destination is one’s own hotel room”.

The show attracted a hefty amount of media coverage with the brand name even trending on Twitter, even until a few hours after the show and Elle calling it Louis Vuitton’s 10 star hotel.

Stay tuned for more!

Fitted high waisted and belted designs (now a staple of the fashion house) with flowing tule skirts were shown in ivory, pink, light blue, and golden beige. The models floated down the runway in fully embellished gowns reminiscent of Disney princesses. Red, white, and black also made a statement at the show, with Saab showcasing a red caped dress very similar to the white Tom Ford gown Gwyneth Paltrow wore to last year’s Oscars.

The glamorous affair was broadcast live on eliesaab.com and attracted worldwide live social media coverage from the glossiest magazines including Vogue, Glamour, and Elle. Online activity hit a high note towards the end of the show as a model wearing a stunning strapless couture bridal gown hit the catwalk, sending the crowd into a standing ovation.




With award season in full swing, here’s hoping we get to see some stars in one or more of these red carpet worthy creations!
