Elie Saab Ready-to-Wear Spring-summer 2009

Spring Breeze

A bouquet of flowers painted “En plein air” in vibrant pastel shades of hydrangea blue, daffodil or almond blossom green and all shades of lilac, spring rose and palest stone. Gathered from the freshness of the garden of Giverny.

Shapes are ultra-short or long and fluid. Some are embroidered with bold motifs, others feature tone-on-tone geometric abstractions, prints of interlaced branches, a flower bed of embroidery or a field of petals.

Key pices include suits, knit dresses and the perfect sheer gowns. Key fabrics are silk georgette, chiffon and jersey, tulle and organza.
