Elie Saab Fall 2009


Elie Saab’s Fall 2009 presentation, gave us the expect – long sophisticated red carpet gowns, plus a different approach to elegant day-wear with graphic cuts, silk prints and structured lines, all with his signature glamour. Long, lean looks in monochrome and two-tone, present a modern silhouette.

One-shouldered pieces were a major themes of the collection, appearing on gowns and day dresses mostly with one long sleeve.

An Elie Saab collection would not be complete without a bit of bling, and he kept Beyonce happy with some gorgeous heavily embellished gowns, she will go gaga over.

The colour palette was a mix of wintery whites, silvery greys, black, dusty blue and celadon green

It wasn’t all about the gowns and day-wear, Elie also presented skinny pants, bolero’s, and cocoon shaped coats.

The collection is accessorized with strong geometric necklaces, cuffs, armloads of bracelets and a single gloved hand.

    Is this a time machine to the forties? Because last time I checked, white washing is so pase’.

    What the heck did they do to Chanel Iman?

    So much for an that all-black Vogue Italia, only to end up with a lack of diversity on the runways.

    Gorgeous dresses, but nothing really stands out for me. I can see a lot of these appearing on the red carpet with little or no modifications needed.

    Beautiful, but he’s definitely not pushing the envelope here…

    I am not a big fan of the one sleeve gowns – it just feels like something is too much or too little.

    I do however love the embellished pieces.

    And, for some reason I can really picture Angelina Jolie in the teal dress pictured top second from the left…
