Elie Saab’s Fall 2016 Ready-to-Wear Collection has got everyone talking, for all the right reasons. I have never viewed a collection where I could honestly say that I loved every piece; however, with this collection, I would without a doubt wear every single piece. For years I have loved Elie Saab, especially his bridal collections (Blair Waldorf’s wedding dress anyone???). I fell in love all over again after seeing his 2014 Couture collection and again with his Spring 2015 collection. So it’s no surprise that when I looked at this collection; it became my life goal to own a wardrobe full of Elie Saab. The 57 piece collection is full of biker jackets, bombers, slim pants, evening dresses, hats and thigh high boots. However, my favourite part of the collection has to be the colour palette. Red, navy, and black with pastel in between, it is perfect for fall. There was lace, embellishment and embroidery; the theme essentially being dark romance mixed with edge. I’ve narrowed down my eight favourite looks for you all (it was a very hard task to keep the list under 25, trust me) If you’re anything like me, you’re going to be lusting over these items for months to come.
I find no fault in this leather jacket. The flowers embroidered on the sleeves are to die for, making it the perfect statement jacket. I love the dress as well, the slit is high enough to make it sexy yet still keep it classy and sophisticated. The neck line is so on trend right now, making this dress a must; if only my bank account allowed it…
This dress is giving major Dvf vibes. I am in love with the cut of the neckline, I think it’s so flattering and sexy. The silhouette is so simple which enables the flower print and the lace to stand out and make this dress the perfect evening dress. It’s obvious that Elie Saab is the master of evening wear.
This look is to die for! The thigh boots in coinciding with the high slit of the dress are a match made in heaven. I love the print of the dress and the belt pulls it all together, plus the high neck makes this dress look professional and edgy at the same time; it’s the perfect look to take from day to night.
Give me this skirt and I’ll be happy for a very, very long time. This one piece is probably my favourite in the collection. I am obsessed with the vibrant red and the mesh makes it interesting and stand out. I would wear this everyday if I owned it…I love it that much.
Sexy Sexy Sexy! The lace cutouts in this dress show enough skin to make it classy yet so sexy at the same time. I am just waiting for someone to rock this look on the red carpet.
I want this entire look, now! The hat, the dress, the boots, every piece by itself is incredible but throw them all together and it’s so dreamy! This sums up the perfect fall outfit for me. The long sleeves of the dress are suitable for colder weather, along with the boots and the hat adds that element of class and sophistication. I’m also really loving the material used.
Another of my favourite looks; this is the type of casual look I’d go for…totally not casual at all. The embellishment on the pants is amazing and I would do anything to get that lace/sheer jacket in my wardrobe as I write this. It is the perfect Fall item.
Another reason why Saab is the king of the evening dress, who wouldn’t want to wear this number?? Its so sexy, flattering and dreamy at the same time. The colour stands out and the lace pattern really brings out the edgy dark romance theme of the collection; it’s a yes from me!
I cannot wait to see what else Elie Saab has in store for the future. Each season his collections get stronger and stronger and I am definitely a fan. To check out the entire collection click here.
