If a little girl could dream up a Princess gown probably would like those proposed by Elie Saab in his last  haute couture fall/winter 2017-18 collection and so it would also like her mom and all women who love to dream sumptuous gowns, gifts, from the lines and volumes, with gilt, regal, with important lines and volumes, falls of golden ramages and brilliant embroidery.

None better than Elie Saab succeeds in his collection to approach with his hate couture fairytale atmospheres. Rather than Queens or empresses earthlings, as we know them, his dresses fare or Queens or empresses of fables.

SS 2017


Haute Couture Paris SS 2017, Elie Saab

After admiring the collection haute couture bridal Elie Saab spring/summer 2017 is almost natural to think of Barthes:
fashion is the rotation of the possible, is the idea that there are some possibilities that are exploited in a circular manner, even if they do not return never exactly at the same point as in the imaginary circle of Giambattista Vico, historical courses and recourses theorist, something has changed. In the Haute Couture, in fact, we proceed rather quickly in a helicoidal way, a spiral. If historical courses and recourses are more reguarding the ready to wear, high fashion, however, anything is possible, even what has never happened before. In this kingdom still largely unexplored and full of possibilities, moves nimbly a great creative like Elie Saab that, in fact, throughout his career he has never repeated and still amazes for his ability to reset the already done to create a blank slate on which to write a new story. Because the real fashion is, above all, the art of change. His  route is, as evidenced by this latest summer collection, absolutely elliptical, not moving along a circle that is inevitably forced to quoting himself, proposing gowns which resemble creations of previous collections. In the name of absolute beauty and brand new, one of the most favourite movie star fashion designer, gives us a collection s/s that is pure joie de vivre with its amazing colors and its refined and charming silhouettes.
