Elie Saab’s Spring 2012 Haute Couture collection impressed me. But the feeling that it left me with was a bit more complicated. On the one hand the range was simply fabulous – elegant, luxurious, exquisite – but on the other, it was too Saab, too traditional and I would even say repetitive.
Despite the fact the couturier is right sticking to something he can do really well, we have already got a little tired of seeing the same shapes again and again. Novelty is a good thing. And a few fresh ideas would change the situation to the better.
If we distant ourselves from the fact we have seen dresses like these in Elie Saab collections many times already and speak about the Spring 2012 Haute Couture range itself, we will say it is very beautiful (though ‘beautiful’ is probably not the right word here, it is spectacular!).
Pieces in Elie Saab Spring 2012 Haute Couture collection came in two lengths – over the knee (and puffy, in the style of the ‘50s) and floor-sweeping. Shorter dresses looked lovely and delicate. Gowns were chic and classy.
Most creations were made light and sheer, with plenty of incredible details. But there were several printed items which looked great but compared to other dresses were like an afterthought.
There was one piece in Elie Saab Spring 2012 Haute Couture collection that deserves special mentioning – the wedding gown. It came the last and marked the end of the show. And it looked fantastic. White in color the piece came with light rosy embroidery and embellished with sparkling sequins and pearls. Precious veil finished the look.
