“For Spring-Summer 2016, I wanted to introduce a woman who takes the codes of the House and feels free to portray them in her own way.” said Elie Saab of her Spring/Summer 2016 Paris Fashion Week show.
On Saturday, Oct. 3, Saab presented a line of read-to-wear pieces in variety of silhouettes and luxurious evening fabrics including silk, lace, crepe and chiffon. Colors were rich, vivid in a palette of rose hibiscus, lawn green and azure contrast with tennis white, which were frequently mixed together with a bold confidence.
Linear and grid-work patterns added a graphic touch to key prints and woven lace designs that were fused with signature foliate motifs. Each design was paired with unqiue shoes featuring embellished with nailhead studs, trellis detailing or laser-cutting.
Saab even introduced a new handbag line named “le 31,” featuring a rectilinear, polished box-calf, with a faceted square clasp closing. Leading the pack of models, were Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Lily Donaldson. Check out the gallery below for more images.
