Designer Elie Saab’s exploration on medieval fashion for his haute couture a/w 2017/18 collection proves that magic is real and he, its master.
“Fallen kings, defeated by a fearless and heroic sisterhood . . . bright and brave warrior queens they were, are, and forever will be” is how he described the inspiration behind the epic line. In other words, a high-fashion spin on The Game of Thrones.
While it’s unclear whether the designer is a fan of the popular HBO series, I’m sure devoted followers of the show will be impressed by his stunning edition. From the capes and jewel-toned velvets to gorgeous embellished gowns, here’s a closer look at some of my favourite pieces.
