Elie Saab fashion show - Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2016 (with interview)

Designer: Elie SaabLocation: Palais de ChaillotInspiration: A garden party organized in New Delhi by the British Empire. A mix between casual youthfulness and princely allureSilhouette: Proposals of numerous detachable pieces: tops, jackets, capes worn like saris, boleros all re-embroidered even sculpted in silver threads, chains, trimmings, grey pearls, Swarovski crystals… Multiples of fluid trousers, plus belted backless gowns with long sleevesColours: Evocation of heat through beiges and shine with the silver threadsNote: Accessories like tiaras, caps all embroidered + bags, belts or backpacks, flat boots and sandals Interview from Elie Saab: It is about a relaxed woman. This time I worked on relaxed moments of a Victorian woman who is in India. That's why all the embroideries were almost Victorian, but when she arrived in India she tried to adapt; she put her shawl around her dress, interpreting the Indian style.Any youthfulness in haute couture demands a jacket, trousers, boots, a special bag and I thought it was a good idea to present detachable pieces. You can ask and buy a jacket, skirt, or trousers individually. I tried to present haute couture differently this time.The bride is almost Indian, with the shawl and I liked having that volume with a more fitted waist and ampler on the lower half. I think it goes with this sari style silhouette. Music of the show (donot reuse for more than 7 days after the show)
