See now here those same overly sweet pastels come off grown-up and gorgeous.
The details—floral appliqués, embroidery—are pitch perfect, add the right amount of texture and dimension, and overall just plain work (nay, make) the look of the line.
Also like Karl, Saab sticks to a few familiar silhouettes. But where Chanel’s were burdened and frumpy, these are flattering and snipped. It doesn’t feel redundant to see the same shape again and again because the details are so beautiful and fitting.
Elie, he’s not breaking any boundaries but this is a beautiful collection. And as a whole it all works together. The tailoring and apparent level of detail warrant the haute couture label. I’d wear every piece with relish.1
