Unveiling his Spring/Summer 2018 haute couture collection in Paris, it is clear the inspiration for Elie Saab‘s new line is “the women in Paris in the 1920s”.
The sophisticated and elegant designs were reminiscent of Josephine Baker, Mistinguett and Kiki de Montparnasse, encompassing the show’s theme – Paris est une Fete.
The collection largely consisted of subtle nude and black pallets and contained beaded, feathered and jewelled applications.
This got us thinking, although these dresses aren’t specifically wedding material, the beautiful and flawless detailing would make the perfect wedding dress.
The timeless link back to the 1920s can help any bride create their dream vintage wedding with a modern twist.
