Paris Fashion Week Spring 2011: Elie Saab Pret-a-Porter

by April Hall, Paris Correspondent
Elie Saab - Retro done right! Elie Saab's spring 2011 RTW collection was a wonderful example of how to take a decade, the 70's, and use it as inspiration, instead of simply remaking them. His glamorous presentation included short suits, kaftans, and platforms, gold jewellery and other highly recognizable 70's trends, yet remained appropriately modern. The dusty rose pink, dusty periwinkle, and print fabric containing both which he used seem very of the moment. In addition the big gold cuffs and necklaces were feminine and surprisingly delicate given their size, which glamed everything up but kept the feeling more Monte Carlo than Miami. There is no doubt that everyone from 18 to 80 will be wearing his designs come the warm spring weather!
