Elie Saab Resort 2018 Collection

The haute couture designer Elie Saab presented another miraculous resort collection. Saab is one of the most famous designers in the world, with many celebrities that adore and proudly parade his breath-taking creations. Elie is actually the first Lebanese designer that had the opportunity to make a dress for an Oscar winner, in 2002 he dressed Halle Berry. He is definitely not much into simplicity. Everything he creates is a real treat for the eyes. His designing style can be described as an explosion of colors, pearls, embroideries, and luxury fabrics.

For the Resort 2018 Collection, Elie designed not only dresses but also a variety of separates. His goal was to bring the high-fashion glamor into pieces that can be worn every day. The inspiration came from the depths of the sea, and the underwater world. Once you take a look at the amazing combinations of color you will feel like you’ve been taken in a whole new dimension.

His ability to perfectly synchronize different types of fabrics, details, styles, and fits is astonishing. The Resort 2018 collection has a darker and a brighter side. The darker side is represented with black lace, embroideries, dark sequins, and details of fishnet fabric. The brighter designs are more dominant and available in electric blue, light peach, coral orange, mint blue and green. As always the designer included his signature multi-colored heavily embellished fabrics that are everyone’s favorites.

Elie Saab is definitely the king of the glamorous red carpet dresses. In spite of the fact that he wanted to implement casual pieces in the collection, he did not miss the opportunity to treat his celebrity costumers with the perfect gowns. The electric part of the collection shows several dresses made of multi-colored chiffon. The energetic orange is nicely combined with light blue and lavender purple, so the dresses look like they are on fire.

The pieces of the collection colored in pastel peach color are all about frills. The ruffled mini-dresses with lace details are accessorized with thin belts in the same color. The two beautiful and elegant jumpsuits carry the same vibe as the mini-dresses.

For those who love the high-end style, there are long soft peach-colored gowns. Once you see them, you will know that Saab is behind the design. Elie Saab definitely developed a very recognizable style in the fashion world. One of the most mesmerizing long gowns is the one-shouldered embellished dress with a side slit.

Elie Saab also designed more casual creations for everyday wear. The sparkling bomber jacket embellished with flowers is a real treat for our eyes. To make things more down-to-earth, Saab paired the bomber with a simple black top and a pair of black pants. The two maxi dresses made of colorful chiffon look like the perfect thing to put on for the hot summer days. The very same tropic print is used for a pair of wide-legged pants and a long cape that is one of the biggest trends this season.

The biggest accessory to the looks are the amazing crystal-studded tights, a detail that Saab presented in his Fall 2017 Collection. He paired the tights with open-toed sandals, some with a very simple design, while others very dramatic. The small clutches and earrings are mostly simple, which is a perfect fit with the grandiosity of the dresses and the other pieces.
