Close up: Elie Saab FW16

Birds flocked on the skirt of a gown with a black velvet bodice; hearts appeared as prints and as crystal embroideries. And there was all manner of flowers—picked out in yellow, light blue, Bordeaux, and black beads on tulle; embroidered in 3-D on Chantilly lace, and appliquéd in watercolour silk on another graceful gown.

That hardly sounds like a novelty at couture, where flowers are many designers’ stock in trade, but Elie Saab has always preferred a monochromatic look, most often with shimmery tone-on-tone embroidery. His embrace of change augurs well for his Upper East Side store, and for the brand in general.
