Theatre of the Dream
In feathers and beads, tulle and lace, Elie Saab let his imagination take flight for spring. The very existence of this collection is something of a wonder itself.
Saab designed a fantasy called Le Théâtre du Rêve (Theater of the Dream) where models sported marvellously worked pieces with Belle Époque splendour. Many pieces featured bold, architectural shoulder details. When combined with the volumes and Saab’s new use of feathers, they read as wings. Dresses predominated, but there were pant looks as well, and the thigh-high boots paired with shorter hems could be mistaken for leggings.
