Paris Fashion Week

Elie Saab SS18

'Amazon Crush' called out the show notes at Elie Saab, and indeed the venue – with its rainforest canopy and lush botanical backdrop – but this was not a collection for the adventurer, rather the glamazon who wants exquisite eveningwear and decadent daywear to transport them to exotic climes.

A python story opened Saab's jungle book in an array of tonal looks, layered, floaty and textured, making way to more proportional plays with long jackets atop shorter skirts. Fringing was key, reminiscent of jungle vines and grassy vegetation, while vibrant, bucolic flashes of tropical hibiscus, lily and orchid punctuated the palette, with foliage motifs, appliqué and earrings.

Upping the voltage on glam as the collection unfurled, evening within the Amazon brought out black lace panelled gowns, deep blue sheer and sequin maxi dresses, jewelled tops with caped arms and tasselled jumpsuits. Harnessing the wilderness with expert precision, this was Saab craftsmanship and creativity at its most vibrant.
