Elie Saab Paris Ready-to-Wear A/W 2017/18

Re-imagining the romantic ballet Giselle for Autumn 2017, Elie Saab created a collection of the dark madness that sees Giselle die broken-hearted, the night before her wedding. Giselle traditionally joins the Wilis, the sprits of girls who died in similar circumstances, and who now seek to kill the errant lover. Giselle in the ballet actually saves her lover from this death. But Elie Saab's Giselle revels in the darkness, dressed in gowns of rich purple, plum, blues and blacks. And this time Albrecht, Giselle's earthly lover, captivated by the abundant leather, lace, chiffon and tulle will willingly succumb. As will we for the collection was gorgeous. As usual I've tried to include fur only where necessary to show the complete outfit.
