Elie Saab SS19: “ I try to enhance their charm with my creations: I look at femininity with my utmost respect"

“I wanted to celebrate the magic of femininity,” said Elie Saab backstage before the show. The usually press-shy designer was putting the final touches on the breathtaking wedding dress in crystal-encrusted tulle that would close the show, a concoction of such sumptuous lightness, it looked like a dream.



“Oui, c’est le rêve!” he enthused. “It’s a dream of luminous mermaids emerging from the waves and promenading along the sea.” The collection indeed had a liquid quality, with sinuous silhouettes dripping in silvery ocean-blue sequins.
I wanted to express the brilliance and the glamour of women; I try to enhance their charm with my creations: I look at femininity with my utmost respect.” (vogue.com)
