ELIE SAAB SS20
Updated: Aug 10, 2021
A very quick sketch that I created live while attending the Elie Saab Spring/Summer 2020 fashion show during Paris Fashion Week last September.
The new collection draws inspiration from the striking African landscapes, presenting a woman that is bold and free-spirited, with pieces in a perfect balance between adventure and opulence.
Just like the diversity of the African scenery suggests, the new Elie Saab offering features different kind of styles: crisp shirt-dresses and fairy-tale jumpsuits along with delicate dresses, for a ladylike take on adventure.
The Spring/Summer 2020 Elie Saab collection thrives on discovery, letting the mind wander across wild landscapes, with a safari-chic signature that only this designer could play with.
This sketch, created during the show, is part of my Paris Fashion Week SS20 live illustrated coverage for L'Officiel Italia.
