Elie Saab Fall 2020 Couture: Beirut, an eternal muse
Suspended somewhere between fantasy and reality, Beirut is a feeling, an experience, a lasting impression, and this is what Lebanese designer Elie Saab wanted to say in “Beirut, Sacred Sources” wanted to say. Borrowing the soft palettes of a celestial sunrise, rich textures from the bounties of the earth and lines of calm flowing waters, he gives breath to a vestiary of beautiful divinities that embody the essences of his most beloved Beirut. Everything in this world seems fantastical and unreal, yet it is all so realizable. This is Elie Saab’s intent, to paint a path onward, a way for his Beirut to shine forward.
