Lana covers: Elie Saab RTW #FW14 – #PFW

Several reviews often criticize Elie Saab of sticking to the same cuts and embroideries. I had never agreed with that point and his fall winter 2014 ready-to-wear collection comes to prove that. Every designer should stick to his classic cuts, to his signature style while trying to bring a change in the details. I simply fell in love with this collection.

First and foremost, I adored how he introduced the use of velvet, I believe the most beautiful part of fashion is introducing new fabrics. I also found extremely interesting how fur, lace, guipure, velvet and crepe were sometimes used on the same outfit. Another surprising note was the use of different hues on the same dress, going from the lightest to the darkest shade of the same range of colors. The use of oxblood was particularly beautiful. Last but not least, even the florals looked different as he took us back to vintage florals: big red flowers on a black background. A stunning yet obscure show, proving to us once again that everything is about mastering fabrics and the use of colors.

On a side note, I loved attending the show with my sweet Nancy, it was great sharing this moment with you!
