Saab’s Tough Elegance – Elie Saab traded in his signature romantic gowns for a sleek and sexy revamp with his namesake label’s fall 2012 collection. Opening with form-fitting dresses and skirts in ash grey and black, the Elie Saab woman wears power dressing for the new decade with architectural inspired silhouettes. Fur coats also made an appearance matched with pencil skirts and long-sleeved blouses. Pants, trench coats and jumpsuits were all staples of the upcoming autumn. Saab saved the evening wear for last, producing glitzy gowns with high slits in metallic hues of gold, silver and bronze.
