Elie Saab Haute Couture Spring 2012

by David Pedroza, Editor in Chief
 Lightness, best sums up Elie Saab's Spring 2012 haute couture collection. Over the seasons, Elie Saab's hand has soften, creating delicate and lovely gowns, that have been a favorite among red carpet attendees. This collection was touched with soft, spring colors such as a warm peach, soft baby yellow, crystal blue, peony pink, all bunched with a bold, sea foam green and white, botanical print; creating a bouquet of charming, soft, and elegant dresses. Silhouettes were classic, regal gowns, and short, volumes, most with long sleeves in organza or embellished tulle. Saab's beading have become more refined, and require more skilled hands to create these embroideries that seam to float over the fabric, instead of weighing them down. Lace pieces were dense, yet light as a feather..... Elie Saab has shown his softer side, proving that he and his atelier have evolved for the better.
