The Elie Saab Fall 2010 presentation was the perfect way to end Fashion Month Week.
In the show notes it said “Pure, absolute black”.
I wondered if we were about to see an all black collection in the same manner as Saab’s all white Fall 2009 Couture collection, but that theory was dashed by Look 30 when a rich burgundy dress glided down the runway.
The other colours presented were leafy green, peacock blue, purple and mocha.
The first part of the presentation was full of form-fitting day wear, before moving to the haunted forest prints which I found to be really intriguing.
From the simple and refined looks we then saw the more extravagant looks Saab is known for.
Embellished gowns and cocktail dresses with keyhole and cut-out details lit up the runway. Taylor Swift would be happy to wear one of these pieces.
From the extravagant we then saw some beautiful tulle gowns which closed the show. Models looked light they were floating on clouds as they breezed down the runway.
The eggplant asymmetrical gown which was trimmed with lace had me breathless.
Elie never fails to deliver, which is why he will always be my red carpet king.
Be prepared to see many of these pieces on the red carpet.
