His atelier, his home, and his Beirut were all destroyed within seconds on the 4th of August in the Port of Beirut horrifying explosion, but Lebanese designer Elie Saab managed to release the SS21 collection on the second day of Paris Fashion week (30th of September), and it was all about life, freedom and peace.

In lieu of the usual Elie Saab show, the house presented the collection titled “A New Dawn” through a film.




Elie Saab’s woman in this collection is blossoming and is celebrating life. She’s standing strong exuding a passionate femininity and brave inner mystic.

Inspired by the renewing power of re-emergence, the collection speaks to a fierce feminine that is soft and organic and, at the same time, daring and adventurous.



Classical light celadon blue and blush pink dresses and pantsuits are made edgy with abstract embroidered translucent tulle with beaded accents. A clean white jumpsuit is embellished with ruffled feathers adding volume, texture and excitement. Full sequin salmon jumpsuit and black pantsuit catch the light and glisten with smarts and determination.


Long caped sleeves, rushed ruffled trimmings and dramatic trains seamlessly flow with the melody of their united movement. Some women embellish their looks with ELIE SAAB monogrammed handbags for practicality, large square-rimmed mirror frames for a bit of mystery and golden leather swirled flats for more ease. The signature ELIE SAAB waistline belt is the final accentuation of every individual silhouette.

A vibrant grass green kaftan moves carefree with a seductive thigh-high slit. Large floral prints bloom onto chiffon, organza and tulle. A modest mini-jacquard knee-length skirt and high collared blouse move in contrast to cheerful ruffled bursts of lemon yellow and bougainvillea fuchsia


And that’s exactly how we were born again, dreaming of peace and serenity with the Elie Saab’s whites, remembering the ones we lost with blood red, and celebrate life in yellow and pink.
