STUNNING BRIDAL GOWNS FROM ELIE SAAB’S SPRING 2014 COUTURE COLLECTION




Recently, we have been featuring bridal gowns from Elie Saab’s Spring 2014 Couture Collection.




Elie Saab, sometimes known simply as ‘ES’, is a Lebanese fashion designer, with workshops in Milan and Paris, as well as Lebanon.

Saab’s style is a unique fusion of the cultures of the east and the west.  Using materials such as satin, noble, taffeta, organza, and satin paired with more fluid and light fabrics, Saab creates a stunning, fashion-forward look in all of his designs.

Inspired by the nineteenth-century Dutch artist Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, who painted scenes from the Roman Empire with his subjects  reclining amid marble statuary, and the Mediterranean Sea in the background, Elie set out to capture a bit of that idyllic ambiance with his new Spring 2014 collection.  His pastel colors—blush pink, hydrangea blue, and lilac—were lifted from an Alma-Tadema canvas, and the collection’s empire waists and gently draped volumes are suggestive of classical dress.

Saab is synonymous with red-carpet sparkle, and there is plenty of that here, as usual.




Here are some more bridal gown designs from that stunning collection:
