Elie Saab 'Poetry in Motion' F/W 17/18


One of ballet`s most iconic scores, Giselle, inspires the Elie Saab Ready-to-Wear Fall/Winter collection with its tale of human love crossing into the supernatural realm.


An ethereal lightness uplifts form, mood and movement amidst a seasonal return to dark romanticism.


Coats and capes, tailored yet dramatic, take flight in movement while pyjama-cut pants and skinny leggings as well as jackets and blazers enter sur scène with perfect ease.


Mini-dresses are graceful, energetic compositions of clean cuts and gathered volumes in step with Elie Saab`s design repertoire.


Fabrics such as tulle, organza and silk chiffon add an intoxicating delicacy to the collection while lace, feathers and embroidered velvet add a textual, sensual blend of innocence and melancholy.


The lily flower appears on chiffon, guipure, quilted leather and as ultra-light embroidery. Symbolizing the souls of the departed, the lily flower is emblematic of Giselle`s tragic, otherworldly tale of youth, beauty and sentiment.


Muted and cool, as if illuminated by moonlight, the season`s colour palette included earthen opera and blue abyss. Hues of dawn, soft lily and whisper-light sugar are contured by whisks of midnight black.


Accessoires are a changing, textual scenography of laser-cut lily motifs, gold studs, Swarovski brilliance and contrasts of suede and fur.


In a well-tempered choreography between form and freedom, an encompassing darkness and an evanescent light, the mood of the winter season is poetry in motion.
