OF NOIR AND NUIT is Elie Saab Pre-Fall 2023 collection designed for a woman who is always in the spotlight of bold glamour and defiant poise.
The collection of dark and sophisticated expressions invokes captivating allure, lavish opulence, and sheer power into the present moment. Vivid strokes of saturated colour add wisps of brilliance to strong silhouettes in dominant shades of black. Like bursts of elation, Sangria and Purple Magic sequins splash across tulle embroidered tailored suits. In the same breath, Fanfare Aqua and a touch of Nautical Blue cascade down strapless dresses and plunging V-neck gowns, illuminating more defined lines. Floral buds dot across New Red scuba mini-skirts and Moonflower White cotton shirts, while three-dimensional foliage blossoms out of boxy leather shirts and matching A-line skirts. Geometric embroidered monograms youthfully thread across a structured denim skirt highlighting outlines through illusions of movement.
Ever-charming and elegant, the ELIE SAAB woman is glamorously dramatic throughout the day in oversized and angular faux-fur vests and jackets. Plush black velvet exquisitely layers with dazzling sequins and delicate lace, one on top of the other. The lush material intricately come together into sumptuous halter-neck jumpsuits and long A-symmetrical mermaid gowns that glitz and glam like the depths of midnight. Essential ELIE SAAB crepe cady cocktail dresses and contour-hugging gowns extend into voluminous, off-the-shoulder swirls. The voluminous embellishments are balanced out with striking cut-outs and the quintessential cinched waist.
The PREFALL 2023 collection radiates and shines into the noirs of night, like the audacious, yet subtly mysterious Elie Saab woman, who forever glistens with glamour.
