Lebanese designer Elie Saab presented his Spring Summer 2018 ready-to-wear collection that evoked the Amazon with its tropical wilderness. Saab used the vivid colors of the forest from jungle green to waterfall blue, and canary yellow to show off his daring designs.
Held at the Grand Palais, the "Amazon Crush" collection opened up with a python printed mini dress with plunging neckline, followed by a same print silk gown.
One of the standouts was the head-to-toe jungle green look with asymmetric detailing and sheer panelling, paired with oversized sunglasses, and a gargantuan hat. There came foliage and leaf shapes, fitted bodice and longer hemline that drifted just above the floor. Thin and silky fringes swing away as they cross the undefined paths like a dynamic dance of jungle vines. Shades of white contrasted the collection's vibrant jungle colors. A Cerulean blue peaked-shoulder tuxedo mirrored the shards of blue sky in between trees, and a loose safari jacket in blinding Cadmium yellow evoked the sun.
