ELIE SAAB | Haute Couture Spring 2014
The Promise of Spring


Elie Saab Haute Couture Spring 2014. In the last decade, season after season, the ‘Elie Saab’ name has become synonymous with sophistication, elegance, glamour and red carpets. Uber gorgeous gowns are always the expectation from the Lebanise designer, and the Spring 2014 Couture was no departure from this aesthetic. For his spring-summer 2014 haute couture collection,- headlined in the program as ‘The Promise of Spring’- Elie Saab found himself inspired by “The Roses of Heliogabalus” of Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema who painted lovely, quietly luxe tableaus of lasses in the 1800s.

The Roses of Heliogabalus by Alma-Tadema (1888), oil on canvas.

The Roses of Heliogabalus is a famous painting of 1888 by the Anglo-Dutch academician Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema. It is based on a probably invented episode in the life of the Roman emperor Elagabalus, also known as Heliogabalus, (204–222). The painting depicts the psychopathic Emperor suffocating his guest at an orgy under a cascade of over two thousand rose petals.
It is said that the artist, working in London at the time, had roses shipped from the French Riviera - for four months during the winter of 1887–1888 -  to capture their fragile nuances with the utmost precision, in a distinct parallel with a dress's journey from the ELIE SAAB ateliers in Beirut to the défilé in Paris.

In particular,  'The Roses of Heliogabalus' becomes a stunning focal point in both the color palette and textural depth of the entire collection, on gowns with multi-dimensional embroideries of bugle beading, sequins and delicate tulle flowers applied to tulle or silk satin in colors from inky black to palest hydrangea blue, lilac and rose d'or. Its sky too is echoed in the fashion show's meticulous light display, flooded with soft, blue-hued Mediterranean sunlight.

Attending the Elie Saab couture show in style were Bond girl Olga Kurylenko, Spanish actress Paz Vega, French actresses Marie-Joseé Croze, Anne Marivin and Clotilde Courau, models Audrey Marnay and Tanya Dziahileva, and former Harper’s Bazaar Russia editor Miroslava Duma.
