Elie Saab Fall 2014–After a season of botanical garden splendor, the theme for Elie Saab’s fall-winter 2014 collection is dark opulence. Inspired by the work of American painter Mark Rothko, who is well-known for his abstract expressionist pieces, the autumn season focuses on sleek and sexy shapes intertwined with the house’s signature femininity. Dresses and gowns cling to the female form in sumptuous fabrics including velvet, crepe and silk chiffon as well as cashmere and mink. The Saab woman dazzles not only with her sequin adorned evening wear, but also with her accessories. Fine jewelry pieces featuring precious gems and handbags in rich jewel tones add a glamorous touch to the upcoming fall.
