When Elie Saab was a young boy, Beirut was experiencing a cultural renaissance and was considered by many to be the Paris of the Middle East. He returns to the spirit of Beirut’s heyday with his glorious and sparkling Spring/Summer 2015 Couture collection, and focuses on injecting his work with a sense of timeless finery, which can be seen in detail in the video below, shared exclusively with Savoir Flair. Entitled ‘Beirut, Chasing a Dream’, the video depicts a striking cadre of top models decked out in couture, which contrasts with the flora and fauna of forest scenery surrounding them. Close-up shots capture the exquisite crystal embroidery work of the gowns, Saab’s stunning marabou-feather surfaces, and illuminated fabrics. By juxtaposing the couture pieces against natural elements, the video acts as a daydream, a fantasy that every woman could easily imagine herself inhabiting.

Watch the video below and be transported into Elie Saab’s fantasy world.
