ELIE SAAB FW16

This has to be the best Elie Saab look I’ve ever had the chance to wear to one of their shows – Haute Couture and RTW! A “Period-feel” with the leather details on the skirt, combined with romantic lace. See-through, yet almost completely covered-up. More is definitely less, and the Victorian-style here to stay – for a little longer…

That “Game-boy” clutch is so awesome, but so clashing with the romance of the look. Yet that’s what I personally LOVE about it. I am deep inside that girl who likes to add something “out of the ordinary” to make it fun. Not necessarily with every look, but whenever possible, a contrasting piece, something funny, weird, and unexpected does the trick! Same for my choice of shoes. I bet Elie would have suggested a pair of heels, yet, I like to go with a classic Gucci loafer.

Maybe it’s not only the fact that I love adding something unexpected to a look, it could be too that I love to “dress looks like these a bit down”. Making it more real, more accessible. I mean, I could potentially wear this skirt, with a white tee and a pair of slides on a regular work-day… It would be a very special work day, though, because it’s not every day that you get the chance to wear Elie Saab of course :)
