Sonia Rykiel 2015 Ready-to-Wear
Sonia Rykiel was truly reborn as designer Julie de Libran crafted the quintessential Spring RTW collection. It was fun, effortless and flirtatious. Everything from the playful pieces to the models that wore them was absolute ideal, and true to the Rykiel brand. A neutral colour palette was contrasted by simple, yet bold, silhouettes. Stripes were renewed; large prints shown on tweed blazers and khaki capes. A slightly sport vibe was translated into shorts and jacket combos, that contrasted the more feminine looks. This collection was overall outstanding, one of my favourite Spring collections for 2015.
Elie Saab Spring 2015 Couture
Sparkle, sequins, and glamour beamed from Elie Saab's Spring Couture collection. I was awestruck by the textures, fabrics, silhouettes, everything in this collection! Saab's taste for all things elegantly exciting was emulated perfectly in his couture collection; as is in all of his collections. He was inspired by the "golden age" of Beirut and his reminiscence of the 60's, and he did a stunning job at showing it in clothes. His clothes were, as they always are and always will be, works of art.
Erdem Spring 2015 Ready-to-Wear
Erdem is making the jungle sexy this Spring. An abundance of greens, in every shade imaginable, were shown on the feminine pieces from this collection. The fierceness of the wild contrasted the soft fabrics and ladylike silhouettes; while complementing the daring sheerness and plunging necklines. This entire collection oozed sex appeal and a wild nature. The simple hair and makeup consummated the entire look and achieved the ideal look for a warm spring night.
Zuhair Murad Spring 2015 Couture
Stunning, gorgeous, charming, elegant, graceful, magnificent; there aren't enough synonyms for the word beautiful to describe Murad's Spring couture collection. Everything from the side-swept old Hollywood curls to the cinched in waist and the minimalistic shoes emitted a type of glamour and elegance that few designers manage to capture. The gowns came in all shapes and sizes: high necks, plunging necklines, swimsuit bodices to full-length dresses. There were no two creatures that looked even remotely alike. Once again, Murad gave us an absolutely beautiful collection.
