Elie Saab Bridal 2021: Timeless and empowering silhouettes

Although his atelier was destroyed due to the 4th of August horrifying Beirut explosion, Elie Saab came back stronger. Since then, he released a Beirut dedicated Fall 2020 collection “Beirut, Sacred sources”, followed by “Hymne à la vie” SS21 ready-to-wear collection as part of Paris Fashion Week, and now is the time for his Bridal 2021 collection themed ‘Radiant Muse.’


For his Bridal 2021 collection, Elie Saab wanted to focus on the romantic femininity quintessential to the Couture house, a romantic femininity in which the bride will express confidence. Timeless silhouettes are subtly revisited with modern and daring details, introducing the classic bride to the empowering allure of the contemporary feminine.   

Each bridal dress moves with its own distinct character. Embroidered tulle organically cascades into flowing trains of silk thread and pearls. Chantilly lace and organza floral appliques, chiffon leaves and petals delicately dance across carefully draped bodices. Structured necklines are accentuated with signature dots and sequins coupled with refined bows of varying volume. 






Each gown is sculpted to reveal the bride’s inner muse, and there’s something for every bride’s dream and style in the collection. The draped strapless ball gown is majestic in tailored taffeta, with an off-the-shoulder detachable pleated bolero and a maxi detachable bow at the back for the woman who sways between being grand or modest. A modern interpretation of the mermaid gown comes with a revealing open back, while an asymmetrical mini with an overskirt will be perfect for the more daring. The signature Elie Saab waist-defining belts add a final touch, highlighting every woman’s beauty.

When a bride chooses an Elie Saab wedding gown, we are sure that it is going to be a showstopping dress. And through his 2021 Bridal Collection, the Lebanese designer is not only giving the bride her princess moment, he is also enhancing her romantic femininity that naturally lies inside her, enabling her to radiate on her big day.
