For his spring-summer 2015 haute couture collection, Lesbanese designer Elie Saab found himself inspired by his childhood in Beirut. “The ethereal fabric of this collection embodies my childhood’s summer breeze. Just like the soft green of my blooming springs, the pale blue of the misty horizon, the yellow of the mimosas, the brown of the damp soil,” writes Saab in the show notes. Drawing influence from the 60s and 70s, the designer shared his vision of the era with curved silhouettes, silk-printed tulips and a dreamy color palette of powder pink, blue and metallic tones. Dresses are short and flouncy or sheer and long with belted waists.
