elie saab couture spring 2012 is even more diaphanous than prior seasons. the slimmer lines & embroidered patterns of his long flowing skirts (saab’s specialty) are sweet, brilliant & virginal. tone-on-tone embroidery of sparkling flowers give a lighter feel compared to his recent couture collections. on the runway he showed full-skirted party frocks & slim evening gowns in a rainbow of pastel shades, nearly all of them sparkly. what separates one from the next is the cut of the neckline, presence or absence of sleeves, length of a train & the occasional cape. the oversize botanical print is nearly regarded as an afterthought amid the white, pink, peach, yellow, green & blue. despite all the handwork, these dresses—w/the exception of an uncharacteristically heavy wedding gown—appear almost weightless.
