ELIE SAAB Bridal Fall 2023 summons the Grecian pursuit of harmonious beauty to celebrate a bridal femininity that is majestic in its contours and pristine in its appeal. By invoking intuitive aesthetics and idyllic proportions, the collection gives breath and movement to an echo of Polyhymnia.
Statuesque silhouettes are sculpted with noble materials and refined detailing that elevate classical virtues into contemporary moments. Lush foliage and embroidered laurel leaves, like victorious Olympian crowns, gloriously wreath around strapless bodices and down ethereal tulle into demure a-lines. Glimmering beads and crystals dance with soft lace panels to rhythms of light embroideries and vibrant textures that glisten with the allure of virtuous white marble sculptures.
Sumptuous draped mikado enfolds natural forms with floral buttoned bursts, while Chantilly lace blossoms across sweetheart necklines and translucent sleeves into revealing open-back ballgowns. Each regal gown is carefully crafted to enhance aesthetics of symmetry, balance and harmony, inspiring a sense of awe.
Like the pillars of ancient temples, volutes of fine crepe-georgette braids lined with glistening details move off the shoulder into gracious fluted columns. In the same spirit, luminescent sequins, beads and pearls structurally swirl off the shoulders and down a sweetheart fitted bodice like opulent colonnades carried by contrasting ruffled tiers.
Translucent gemstones shimmer across a V-neckline, gathering at delicately knotted waistline before streaming into a modest but equally dazzling floor-sweeping skirt.
Veils lined with complementing embroideries from crown to floor and quintessential ELIE SAAB defined waist, bring a final touch of grace and poise.
From luscious fabrics of abundance to silhouettes of golden proportions, ELIE SAAB Bridal Fall 2023 captures the gestures of Ancient Greece to create a collection of mythical proportion.
