Elie Saab Is Inspired By Moonlight For SS24 Womenswear Collection

Taking place at the iconic Palais de Tokyo in Paris, the leading force in Lebanese fashion, Elie Saab put on a show like no other for the new season. 

Key pieces in the new collection – called “Moonlight Shadow” –  included exquisite shades of turquoise and looks inspired by the feminine form. 

Discussing the new season in the show notes, Saab said: “The iridescent moon takes its place in the twilight sky to mark the start of opulent revelries… Mediterranean vibes in pursuit of lavish parties that flourish in her nocturnal glow. She effortlessly moves through the tinkering glasses and lounging crowds, across dancefloors to blueish-sparkling poolsides reflecting Elie Saab RTW SS24.”

Elsewhere in the collection, breezy textures in vivacious colour and polka-dot interpretations accentuated the energetic lines and casual contours of simple silhouettes. Strong monochromatic mixes of pink brought a burst of flavour to cotton denim safari ensembles and wide-legged pantsuits. Coral Spritz embroidered tulle mingles with delicate lace, in conversations about sheer youthful bralettes, camisoles and long bodycon skirts with intricate trims of subtle fizz.

Talking about the new collection, the house continued: “The incandescent  Elie Saab woman is always ready for moonlight gatherings in the radiant day looks that bring blissful glimmers to the evening. Flowing open-back summer dresses with scalloped hemlines are garden-fresh in oversized white English lace. Wisps of citrus organza flowers flourish from the monochromatic hemlines of billowing silk bomber jackets. Chunky tromp-l’oeil sapphires, rubies and platinum chains trace a white kaftan with a sleek cape…She fills the every day with an everlasting light that overflows to illuminate the Moonlight Shadow.”
