Elie Saab has been one of my favorites since I first saw Jennifer Lopez wearing one of the designer’s gowns to an award show. The elegant style, ethereal beauty, and extremely feminine aesthetic floor me. I’m a fan of grunge, rock, almost goth dark looks, but also really girly at the same time. Saab’s Fall RTW line engulfed all of those attributes and won me over, once again. Below, find some of my favorite looks.
I remember the first time I walked into the Vêtements showroom one cold afternoon a couple years ago, I knew i was witnessing a brand that would blow. They already had the support of Kanye, who holds influence over many. Not only this, but their hush-hist approach to secrecy concerning the brand would also propose their eventual overturn of the fashion industry. With streetwear becoming the mode all over again, their anti-conservative, streetwear with uber French counter authority attitude would win. I mean, they made boots with lighters for the heel; genius. Their Fall 2017 show didn’t leave me with any concerns or disappointments. It was smart, thoughtful, and the choice of models whom appeared to be just everyday people, dressed in outfits that one would assume a person with their air and face would wear. I was also very much digging the older people who were strutting their stuff, as I am really against ageism. Please, don’t take my word for it, just peep some of my favorites below.
