Saab’s Ultra Sexy Spring – Elie Saab delivered a strong and sexy collection for his spring 2012 showing presented during the final day of Paris Fashion Week earlier today. Embracing jewel toned hues ranging from sapphire blue to emerald-green, the Elie Saab woman was feminine and sensual for the new season in body-hugging silhouettes and lace embroidered bodices. Adding a bit of shine, gowns featured sparkling sequins, accenting the Lebanese designer’s impeccable drape and fit. Besides dresses, tailored pantsuits and jumpers also made an appearance with plunging necklines for a cheeky effect.

The Saab Vision – Elie Saab’s couture collections always take feminine elegance to new heights and the fall 2011 showing was no exception. Sticking to delicate tones of ivory, bronze and gray, Saab’s gowns were adorned with Swarovski crystals and sequins which truly made the dramatic silhouettes and plunging necklines sparkle. Adding lace-works to the runway in the form of flirty skirts and dresses; the collection contained wearable options to offset the sumptuous glamour.

For Elie Saab’s fall 2011 outing, the Lebanese designer’s elegant protagonist was the epitome of Parisian chic. The long and slinky silhouettes were color coordinated from stark black to rich reds and deep plums with no shortage of saturated hues with Saab’s heavenly creations. Prints took form in the shape of neo-floral drawings, and textures ranged from the sparkling crystals to lace inlays for a concise yet show-stopping collection.
