Spring Summer 2014 Haute Couture Show Review Pt 2




Elie Saab — Idyllic Wonderland




Elie Saab, once again, brings all the audiences into this magical fairy wonderland by the puffy chiffon dresses and whimsical colors. However, in this show, the fairy wonderland has a more idyllic vibe. This collection actually reminds me of the prominent painting “The Rose of Heliogabalus” by Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, because of the blossomy flowers decorations on the dresses. 

Moreover, the finale is a wedding gown that stunned the world with it’s gorgeousness; a friend even tells me she is willing to die 5 years earlier to marry her boyfriend in this dress. That’s the allure of Elie Saab.

Atelier Versace - Unapologetic Glamour


Speak of Versace, the daring colors, glittering accessories, and flowing fabrics are some of the first things that comes to mind. You are right, those factors appears in Donatella’s design again. More provocatively, the inspiration behind this collection is the androgynous icon - Grace Jones; in order to pay tribute to this fashion muse, Donatella incorporated draped hood in every ensemble. 


Besides, the jeweled silk texture, and the corsets well-enhance the movement of female body, make it glows even in the dark. This collection not only shows the talent of Donatella as a designer, but also depict her as a women — sexy with no inhibition.
