Elie Saab is a major force in fashion. Born in Beirut, he has conquered the world of haute couture with a list of famous celebrities that are his most loyal customers and indeed that have become friends.
His style is unique. A mixture of oriental and western styles that only Elie Saab is capable of combining into pure fashion art. His clothes are modern, fluid, but rich and exotic, often decorated with wonderful broidery and semi-precious stones. He is a reference in “haute couture” and his collections are eagerly awaited and quickly bought by the richest and most beautiful women in the world. At Cannes, Hollywood – Elie Saab shines out all the time.
Elie Saab’s business has flourished and he now offers an exciting ready to wear collection. Added to this is a fine range of accessory handbags that are both elegant and practical.
Elie Saab first opened his Parisian store over 15 years ago – in a superb location, just off the Champs Elysees. What excitement when he opened this new French flagship store on the very chic Avenue George V (pictured right). The store houses ready-to-wear and accessories. You will also find Elie Saab’s “Le Parfum”, beautifully packaged in one of the most iconic perfume bottles ever produced, made of crystal
Elie Saab has now added a further accessory to his growing collection. He has chosen Safilo, the renowned fully integrated Italian eyewear creator to produce the very first Elie Saab eyewear collection.
The first collection will be available worldwide starting from January 2017 in a selected network of exclusive eyewear specialists and in ELIE SAAB boutiques worldwide.
Commenting on the deal, Elie Saab said: “Creating an eyewear collection is a logical evolution that follows the development of our accessories line. In Safilo, I have found a partner of trust, able to operate at the highest levels of sophistication, envisioning and then bringing to life my creative vision in wondrous frames of outstanding quality, with the finest materials and details.”
Safilo’s Luisa Delgado added: “We are delighted to work with Mr. Elie Saab and proud of his trust in us. This long-term partnership offers a unique opportunity to create, craft and distribute worldwide exquisite eyewear that represents infinite creative inspiration, timeless elegance and preciousness.
The collection will celebrate the philosophy of its creators, with sophisticated designs and the finest craftsmanship, showcasing intricate details, precious materials and a lightness that is characteristic of the house. The collections will be crafted in Italy and Japan, using the most refined and qualitative techniques.
