Elie Saab SS 2015 Ready-to-wear Fashion Show in Paris







A plunge into the ocean, a search for sunken treasure. The Spring/Summer 2015 collection is inspired by the intense colour, glistening surfaces and hidden beauty of the underwater world.

The palette is brilliant, tropical, drenched in colour. Lagoon green, sea-mist, coral flecked with vibrant yellow and a deep, pure shade of blue inspired by the Amalfi sea. Along with timeless black and white, these are the keynote shades, worked through a myriad of fabrics and finishes.

Prints bubble across dresses in ombre effects, inspired by the changing colours of darting marine life. The collection’s key graphic, a glistening submarine print of sun-dappled water, is used for day and evening alike. Shades of dégradé give the effect of fabric submerged in water.

Decoration ebbs and flows around the body, tone on tone, creating a chiaroscuro of embroidery against skin and fabric. ELIE SAAB abstracts its signature lace, as if worn away by the salt of ocean spray. It is combined with foliate lace, in gowns that cascade around the body.

Silhouettes are easier, sportier. A Seventies feel informs sinuous silk-cady gowns, whilst trousers and blouson jackets have a casual air. New day propositions for the ELIE SAAB woman focus on abbreviated lengths that feel graphic and contemporary.

Evening is fluid. Rivulets of ruffles delineate the body, like the surfaces of shells or the swaying currents. Waves of lace and slipstreams of georgette tumble from a defined body.

Accessories accent the life aquatic, iridescent skins in the collection’s key colours mimicking those of exotic fish and used for the slender ELIE SAAB Poincaré bags as well as sandals, both heeled and flat. They underline the season’s glorification of the ocean, and the submersion of the ELIE SAAB woman into the beauty of the underwater kingdom.


Georg Jensen The Vivianna Collection

3517124 Dew Drop Pendant 1128 WG_HK$143,000

3518407 Dew Drop Earring 1144 WG_HK$64,000



The Vivianna collection lets the sun shine in this season with new styles inspired by the revolutionary designer Vivianna Torun Bülow-Hübe. Vivianna’s original designs were considered ahead of her time and to this day remain relevant and iconic for the modern woman.

Torun’s sleek and feminine bangles, launched under the original design moniker Bangle 204, are launched in precious 18kt yellow, rose, and white gold. The bracelet’s slender form features a loop lock with two-tone embellishment, and an additional loop set with white pave diamonds. Proving that the legendary designer is as relevant today as ever, the bangles are both bold standout pieces and versatile stacking styles.

The sleek Neckring 174 from the Dew Drop series is updated to modern sensibilities with 18kt yellow, rose, and white gold, and features an extravagant diamond-embellished drop pendant, consisting of over 700 stones and a total diamond carat weight of 2.8 ct. Remaining true to Torun’s design ethos, the new additions, which also include diamond embellished drop earrings and button earrings, enhance the wearer and move gracefully with her body yet without overpowering the sensibilities of her style.

Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci SS 2015 Womenswear Collection in Paris







For this collection, Riccardo Tisci goes back to the seventies and his early days at Givenchy. Those days when the woman was sexy and powerful, sensual and self-confident.

From the high boots, to the lace dresses and leather high waist trousers, this collection draws inspiration from oppositional references: tyrolien in the shape, pinball in the prints and rock in the attitude.

Riccardo Tisci gives a new breath to the Givenchy wardrobe. He proposes a modern version of his rock/couture style with a very graphic silhouette optimized by the black & white print.

The strength of this collection resides in the knowledge of mixed materials: eyelet on lace, printed chiffon, cut out leather and leatherette embroideries, iron nails and semi-precious stones.

The Spring Summer 2015 Givenchy woman is the quintessential amalgamation of all the women who continue to inspire Riccardo Tisci and his vision of Givenchy.
