Elie Saab Spring 2013 Paris Fashion Week

Elie Saab Spring 2013 - this collection with a more youthful vibe than in seasons past. Several fluid dresses in a bright, Rorschach-like print had a casual elegance that felt fresh. There was also some appealing tailoring: a button-down shirt with matching pants, and a sculpted jacket, shorts and handbag, all worked in a strong blue tone. While they were heavy on monochromatics, the looks had a working-girl sensibility .

Still, plenty of Saab’s more expected eveningwear was mixed in, including embellished formfitting lace dresses - both short and sexy and long and slinky - in nude, turquoise and fiery red. The strongest ones came in the finale: gowns in a fine lace with ribbons placed around the lower torso and waist to accentuate a more sensual silhouette -They added a romantic touch.
