DTK’s To Kill For:
ELIE SAAB PRE-FALL 2020

Here’s another collection that’s simply to kill for: the Elie Saab Pre-Fall 2020 collection; a collection featuring beautiful, intricate evening dresses that play with shape and texture.

           —By Luisa Tarantino

What is most striking to DTK in this collection is the incredible use of shape – Saab interprets evening wear through billowy skirts, layered ruffles,  capes, sweeping bat sleeves, sheer lace structures, and more.

In typical Elie Saab fashion, the details on each piece are incredibly intricate, be it the embroidery, the silhouette, or the lace detailing. The collection manages to perfect both minimalism and intricacy, marrying both for unmatched elegance. The silhouettes are ultra feminine and the detailing delicate – floral motifs and beautiful beading adorn many pieces in the collection. In terms of colour, the collection is rather subdued, but the colours the collection does use are rich and deep – eggplant purple, vampy burgundy, bold turquoise, and dark floral themes. In addition, while some looks call for grandeur occasions, and others serve as statement pieces, the collection still has much more wearable pieces, from wrap dresses to minimalist gowns.
