Whether or not you believe in magic, there’s no denying that Elie Saab is an absolute magician. Case in point? His new Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 2017/2018 collection. Inspired by “fallen kings, defeated by a fearless and heroic sisterhood . . . bright and brave warrior queens they were, are, and forever will be,” the collection is a fantasy come to life — a fairytale of dresses with a very badass heroine. And thanks to the photographic genius of Greg Finck, you can obsess over these beauties as much as we are!
For Autumn/Winter 17/18, Elie Saab transports us into a world of medieval magnificence, as the Haute Couture collection captures the opulence and wild beauty of long forgotten times, and translates it into fiercely elegant feminine silhouettes. As velvet and lace intertwine in perfect harmony, mousseline and tulle courteously carry each other along the pathways, adding lightness to gracefully draped fabrics. Peplum jackets and satin duchesse dresses and a subtle touch of architectural intent into voluminous allures of nobility. Then, long lavish coats and crowning capes born the shoulders, as if taming the cold. And while deep, plunging necklines let the cool and refreshing air caress the neck, long sleeves carefully sculpt the arms like an impenetrable feminine armour.
