For Spring/Summer 2015, Lebanese designer Elie Saab invited showgoers to “Dive Into the Deep Blue” with a collection that sparkled, shimmered, and shined – much like the sun-dappled surface of the ocean. In this behind-the-scenes video, experience the backstage hustle and bustle as models prepare for their turn on the catwalk. Witness makeup artists creating a colorful smoky eye in electric blue and royal purple to match the vivid colors of Saab’s spring/summer collection, while hair stylists craft loose, softly curled locks to match the breezy, sportif feel of the clothes. The video also highlights the runway show in slow motion, zooming in for close-ups of sculpted cuffs with oversized gemstones, chic box clutches, and elegant dresses embroidered with sequins and paillettes. While the pace of a runway presentation is fast and flashy, this slow-moving video savors the best details from Elie Saab’s Spring/Summer 2015 show, allowing you to appreciate the moments that others in attendance might have missed.
