Valentino Spring Summer 2019 Full Womenswear Runway Fashion Show Collection by Pierpaolo Piccioli
Elie Saab Spring/Summer 2019 Collection: Standing on Stardust
It was literally a starry collection filled with magical Seventies disco vibes, as for hisElie Saab spring/summer 2019 ready-to-wear lineup,the designer sprinkled cascades of starry patterns on this exciting Paris Fashion Week. “Standing on Stardust” was the name of the show, which was staged on a gold glitter dusted runway that highlighted the disco theme of the collection.
As usual, Elie Saab magnified women’s figures through a dream array of staples made of the finest materials and delicate embroideries, including a more glamorously street wear allure, too. Most of the Elie Saab spring/summer 2019 proposals got, in fact, accessorized either with funky hats or oversized sunglasses, catapulting us back in the late Eighties.
As a whole, this collection was extremely variegated, if not even multi-dimensional, with the designer’s eclectic style being represented by intriguing contrasting patterns and styles. Aside from the long and short dreamy dresses, the collection featured statement pieces that could be regarded as being either closer to urban-chic style or high fashion, depending on how we decide to style and layer the looks.
The collection navigated both the territories, at times even proposing two completely different versions of the same staple. Toward the finale, however, Elie Saab solely focused on evening dresses, translating them to the most glamorous, Seventies-inspired allure.
A galactic constellation of both minuscule and big stars linked all the pieces to one another, accessories included. When not featuring starry patterns, Elie Saab focused either on cascades of glittery and sequined patterns, or on studded embellishments, creating one of this Paris Fashion Week’s brightest collections.
The collection’s patterns did not solely include stars. Multi–colored stripes and military hints enhanced by layered, frilled appliqués, revived the lineup with glam rock and street wear patterns accordingly, interrupting (only for a few moments) the collection’s imposing starry motif.
As for the collection’s cuts and lines, self-taught fashion designer Elie Saab proved he was definitely not afraid of grandiose figures either.
Jocosely sensual, the line-up got mixed and matched a lot in terms of proportions, baring either the chests or the legs. Needless to say, Elie Saab’s spring/summer 2019 collection put a lot of emphasis on the waistlines too, as seen throughout basically all of these Paris Fashion Week’s runway shows, with both belts cinched at the waists and jackets cut in hourglass figures highlighting them.
See-through fabrics helped Elie Saab transform most of his strictest and sharpest pieces, making them become ethereally voluminous and airy, especially as seen in the range of little black dresses and pencil trousers.
Incredibly eclectic and probably not suitable for everyone, the Elie Saab spring/summer 2019 collection did, however, deliver a few must-have statement pieces, such as the motorbike-inspired apparel, the funky waistcoats and the fairytale-like shoe line that will likely fly off the shelves as soon as they hit the stores.
