A sharp, sleek graphicism, but with a frisson of seduction. The Autumn-Winter 2014/2015 ELIE SAAB collection dovetails the house’s signature femininity with a new geometry of cut, shape and decoration, to create a fresh and arresting hybrid.

The work of Mark Rothko is the collection’s key starting point. This surrendered the collection’s linear focus as well as a rich palette of luminous colour, merlot and emerald highlighted with pale rose. These shades, often in dégradé from one hue through to another to create an optical illusion on the female form, are worked across fabrics from velvet, crepe and chiffon, through to cashmere and mink.
