The Simply Luxurious Life®: Elie Saab – Fall 2011 Couture  

July 6, 2011

Elie Saab – Fall 2011 Couture

Elie Saab’s collections always leave me speechless for all of the right reasons. While the same thread of tuck waistlines and oodles of beads and demure glamour was present, there was a lighter more easy quality to the tone of the entire collection. Beginning with the colors of white, icy gray, blush, muted navy and golden browns, each piece whether a cocktail or gown, was fitted and draped in all of the right places.

The models with their loosely swept to the side chignons looked as though they were from from another era of romantic modernism. And while some may tire of Saab’s similar collections, I can’t help but admire and applaud his talent.

I love Eli Sab´s dresses. They remind me of the Belle Epocque ladies who Boldini used to paint.

Oh My! This is hands down my most favorite collection. Stunning dresses!

Wow! Wish these were around when I got married. I'd had loved to have worn one of his gowns.
