ELIE SAAB SPRING SUMMER 2014 HAUTE COUTURE
Inspired by the paintings of Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema and dedicated to the luxury and decadence of the Roman Empire, Elie Saab engages the runway with glorious silhouettes, presenting his Spring/Summer 2014 Haute Couture collection. Fresh, ravishing floral tones compose the colour palette in blush pink, blue hydrangea, lilac, rose d’or and pure white in contrast with imperial purples and charcoal black chiaroscuro. The richness of textures and embellishments in appliques and embroidery with crystals evoke grandeur of the past. Elie Saab’s Spring/Summer 2014 Haute Couture collection captures the precise moment of beauty, as Alma-Tadema’s paintings have done throughout history.
