A combination of sleek military tailoring, dark furs, leaf embroidered gowns and graphic prints were seen at Elie Saab. From the get go there was a sense of a military influence, with khaki colours and buttoned up power-jackets with gold button detail (now top of our lust list). Models were accessorised with large gold earrings in ball, hooped and leaf shapes, with chain bags and gleaming gold belts.
The militant feel slowly shifted into an ethereal fairy-tale, with stunning decadent dresses coated in autumnal coloured graphic prints and lashing of dark lace. Backstage, beauty was princess meets grunge, with a dark smoky eye and clean skin teamed with loose tousled waves.
Stunning laced-up open toe boots were seen in black, khaki, burgundy and blue. If you want to rock a pair of Elie Saabs statements shoes without the statement price tag, then you need to invest in a pair of Zara’s burgundy Lace-up Leather ankle Boots, £69.99, they’re the perfect high street alternative to rock this spring.
