Elie Saab has revealed the latest bridal collection for Fall 2023.
Titled “An Echo of Polylymnia” the collection is inspired by ancient Greece and offers femininity and beauty with a majestic and regal appeal.
Statuesque silhouettes are sculpted with noble materials and refined detailing that elevate classical virtues into contemporary moments. Lush foliage and embroidered laurel leaves, like victorious Olympian crowns, gloriously wreath around strapless bodices and down ethereal tulle into demure a-lines.
Glimmering beads and crystals dance with soft lace panels to rhythms of light embroideries and vibrant textures that glisten with the allure of virtuous white marble sculptures. Sumptuously draped mikado enfolds natural forms with floral buttoned bursts, while Chantilly lace blossoms across sweetheart necklines and translucent sleeves into revealing open-back ballgowns.
Each gown is carefully crafted to enhance the aesthetics of symmetry, balance and harmony, inspiring a sense of awe, like the pillars of ancient temples.
Fine crepe georgette braids lined with glistening details move off the shoulder into gracious fluted columns. In the same spirit, luminescent sequins, beads and pearls structurally swirl off the shoulders and down a sweetheart-fitted bodice like opulent colonnades carried by contrasting ruffled tiers.
Translucent gemstones shimmer across a V-neckline, gathering at a delicately knotted waistline before streaming into a modest but equally dazzling floor-sweeping skirt. Veils lined with complementing embroideries from crown to floor and quintessential ELIE SAAB defined waist, bring a final touch of grace and poise.
