Elie Saab - Opening soon on the George V, Paris

Elie Saab to Open Boutique on Paris’ Georges V Street

On a recent trip to Paris, I was positively surprised to see that our very own Elie Saab is opening a boutique on the legendary George V street in the French capital!

The designer already has a boutique in Paris situated on the Avenue Franklin Roosevelt catering to Haute Couture; Ready to Wear boutiques are located in Mexico, Hong Kong, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Qatar, UAE, as well as France and Lebanon.

While there is no word yet regarding the exact opening date, it is important to note that the Georges V street is home to The Four Seasons as well as several other 5 star hotels and brand boutiques that are perpendicular to the legendary Champs Elysees.

Last year, the Four Seasons Georges V housed an exhibition featuring Saab’s Haute Couture AW 2013/2014 show- obviously a sign showing that the five star hotel is proud to call our Lebanese designer it’s new next-door neighbor.

Spotted! | Katy Patra by Nicolas Jebran

Katy Perry dazzled audiences with her rendition of “Dark Horse” during the Brit Awards a few nights ago, and most of the credit goes to non other than Lebanese designer Nicolas Jebran who dressed her in a drop dead stunning Cleopatra inspired outfit that looked like it took ages to put together!

But the real story here happened a few nights later when Perry premiered the official video for her latest single wearing an amazing gown by the same Lebanese designer all throughout. The California native is featured as Queen Katy Patra (as the internet has been calling her) sitting on a thrown and wearing a multi-colored intricate design by Jebran. The gown is a piece of art and just simply stunning!

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.
