Elie Saab closed the fall shows with an ode to Parisian ladies. It was a straightforward exercise in glamour, anchored in monochromatic pairings — ivory, purple, red and black — such as skirt suits with peplumed jackets and pencil skirts, all much more sober than usual. The daywear was cut clean and discreet, with spare details such as a single inverted pleat on the front of a sheath dress. Fur shrugs and leather jackets boosted the drama by day, and slim, structured gowns that spilled into trains provided an easy elegance for evening. It was a nice change from Saab’s typical glitz.
