Review and Pictures of Elie Saab Runway Show at 2012 Spring Summer Paris Fashion Week

2012 Paris Spring S/S Fashion Week: Elie Saab

The celebrity-favourite designer turned out a rainbow-coded colour fest for Spring '12. It's as if he took each primary hue from a box of crayons, then offered an iteration of evening wear, cocktail sheaths, and suiting — one in every colour. The primary references have only to do with colour scheming; there's nothing elementary about the red-carpet-worthy gowns, made brighter and more statement-worthy in sequins, dreamy sheer layers, and lace. You see the craftsmanship in every piece — a subtle, smart lace inset on a cobalt blue suit, a just-sexy-enough neckline on a fitted sheath. It's a collection that carries its sex appeal with total confidence — just like that woman who will wear it.

  • Trends: Brights, lace, sheer, slits.
  • Colours: Bold blue, green, orange, and yellow; creamy white.
  • Key Look: The green sequined gown with a cinched waist and a plunging neckline.
  • Accessories: Box clutches and strappy pumps to match every colorful look.
  • Who Would Wear It: Look for it all over the red carpet.
