The Top 10 Trends Show, featuring S19 Elie Saab Couture


Last Top 10 Trends we saw, fluidity, pastels and more traditional lady-like expressions with Temperley London Spring 19 Ready-To-Wear S/S trends. This time around, spring is in full bloom, and so we are seeing a lot of romance, weddings, special occasions and incredible evening decadence in the City. It’s a time of femininity and whimsy and so we were so excited to see Elie Saab breath new sophisticated life into the tired mermaid craze of recent past.

It’s a dream of luminous mermaids emerging from the waves and promenading along the sea.” he said, describing his main influence on the Spring 2019 Couture Collection.

Undoubtedly, you will see this reoccurring oceanic influence, along with the ultimate femininity and daintiness that comes with many of the wispy textiles, details and crystal embellishments chosen for the pieces. A true sight of sentimentality and loveliness, these are, our Top 10 favorite trends for Elie Saab, S19, Couture Collection.

10. Watercolors

Like paintbrushes washing over the lux fabrics of sirens, watercolor marks set the washed tone for the even stronger oceanic influence seen further in the collection.

9. Liquid Metallics

Like glistening stars in the evening at the sea, metallics were chosen with a more liquid influence and star gazing appeal.

8. The Ocean at Night

In a lovely twist on oceanic hues, Saab reminisces on the romantic night sky and its meetings with the waters. Navys and saturated blue hues take our breath away and once again monochromatic statements reign supreme.

7. Siren Sunglasses

What mythical creature is set without mysterious eyes and a magical soul? Elie Saab’s current eyewear features dramatic appeal that will update any outfit.

6. Ultimate Brides

As we’ve said many, many times in our countdowns over the years, we are not fans of the tired strapless wedding gown seen on almost everyone in the “play it safe” world. Bravo to Elie Saab for bringing the modern bride to a whole new level.

5. Power Evening Suits

For the powerful woman. For the one who stands out. This trend is absolutely on fire. The nod to mermaid scales with appliqués and “fins” with creative draping is incredibly unparalleled and we just can’t get enough.

4. Red

This primary color takes center stage yet again this season. Monochromatic statements still maintain strong and cinched gold waist belts reign supreme for S2019.

3. Wet Hair

Like glistening goddesses emerging from the sea, hair trends are molded back and dawn a never ending wet look with slick back styles.

2. Wispy Ballgowns

Much like the ever present theme, the mermaid, attention is drawn downward towards a fuller leg and a wispy textile. Peek a boo nudes are a perfect pairing with dazzling sparkle, sequins and crystals.
