Elie Saab Couture Spring Summer 2012 Paris

 

The Spring Summer 2012 ready-to-wear could have given us a hint of some of the haute couture collections's standout pieces: shorter skirts and more lace. The skirts, several inches above the knee, looked, in white and yellow lace like the consummate bellflowers. Below a silver beaded blouse, in a pastel blue embroidered with crystalized tulle flowers, the effect is sweet, upbeat and virginal.

The Spring Summer 2010 couture collection shows a woman strolling down the runway with cascading hair and equally spilled chiffon; the following year was a woman laden with floral appliqués in romantic old rose who felt like an ethereal garden. For Spring Summer 2012 she is literally more brilliant and her garden is anything but plucked.

The long flowing skirt--Saab’s expertise--is even more diaphanous than seasons past because of both the slightly slimmer line of the dress and the pattern in which the embroidery is sewn. Sparkling crystalized tulle flowers tattoo the bodice and the pastel colours are as sweet as those in a fair in a Southern movie. Along with the tone-on-tone embroidery, these give a less crafty and lighter feeling compared to recent couture collections.

Saab gets a little imaginative in a pink dress with strips of silk sewn into tulle to form a fence, with flowers wrapping around like a vine to cover the breats. A faded mint see-through dress with vines that cap sharp shoulders have that look-at-me touch to turn any society princess into a steamy royal.
