Paris Fashion Week Fall 2012

Paris Fashion Week RTW ~ Elie Saab

Elegant, strong and sophisticated describes the Fall 2012 RTW collection by Elie Saab featured in Paris Fashion Week. The collection was a mixture of day and evening wear with coats, capes and pantsuits sprinkled throughout. Black, grey and nude were the primary colors of the collection, however emerald green, gold and silver were featured in the evening gowns.










Crisp pencil skirts and tailored jackets looked ready to walk off the runway and into the office. Fur coats worn over dresses and sleek skirts added sophistication to the everyday look. 




Stunning, red carpet worthy gowns added the glamour to the collection for which Saab is known. Sparkling, floor sweeping dresses graced the runway with high slits and plunging necklines. A thin belt cinched the waistline on most of the dresses; an accessory not usually associated with evening wear, but highlighted perfectly in this collection.








The Fall 2012 collection by Elie Saab is blend of sophisticated suits and breathtaking evening wear; a glamorous way to mix business with pleasure.

Bold jewel tones and fierce, yet feminine, silhouettes defined Lanvin's Fall 2012 RTW colllection at Paris Fashion Week. The runway show began with clean lines and solid prints with minimal accessories. Ruby red, gold and sapphire were among the colors on the primarily jewel toned palette. The color palette also included a group of solid black ensembles that contained dresses, jackets and coats with a fierce, streetwise feel.









Feminine curves were highlighted with cinched waistlines, rounded hips and body-hugging fabrics. The delicate details included ruffles, sewn on jewels and calf-enhancing hemlines.
