Paris Fashion Week Coverage: Elie Saab Spring 2013

Elie Saab’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection, ‘Heiress’, recalls the finer points of nepotism. Instead of the wayward famous-for-nothing behavior of the Hilton crowd, it conjures up the professionalism of the Ivanka Trumps of this world: hard working, elegant, and effortlessly sophisticated. Growing up with money can do terrible things to a person, but Saab reminds us that it’s not money that’s the problem; it’s what you do with it. His collection is impressively fleshed out with controlled menswear separates, flowing boho maxi dresses, and glittering cocktail gowns. His stunning palette of royal and aquamarine blue, fuchsia pink, peach, cream, and taupe worked to improve on all of the beautifully tailored finery. Saab’s strong suit is occasion dressing, and here he gave the heiress something for every occasion. From boardroom power suits to black-tie galas, her entire seasonal wardrobe can be satisfied by a stop at Saab.
