Trends | Elie Saab’s Lace Garden

In between inking a deal with Evian for 2014 last week, Elie Saab found some time to showcase his stunning Ready to Wear Spring Summer 2014 collection at the Jardins des Tuilleries, as part of Paris Fashion Week.

Following the amazing Royal Affair  Autumn Winter 2013 collection, Saab draws inspiration from nature and accentuates it with dazzling lace details. Vibrant Spring colors included white, soft rose, greens, blues, and new take on florals that made the trend seem more youthful.

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.

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.

Next to present today is the Italian based brand Miu Miu and with Lebanese master Elie Saab set to close out the fashion week, I expect to see some red carpet worthy creations on the runway.

Stay tuned for more!
