Elie Saab couture SS20 was magical. It was far from minimal and celebrated the female form in every way. The collection was everything grand, luxurious and meticulous.
This collection was royal. Each piece was painted with greatness and nobility. Elie Saab is known to be the sculpturer of feminism. His collection for Spring and Summer 2020 was inspired by the Mexican culture that was visible through the motive and embroidery on each dress.
The Haute Couture Spring Summer 2020 collection is a mix of both Europe & Mexico with a modern twist. The dresses looked monumental with embroideries and layers of florals and pearls, featured shades of white, cream and blush, with gold detailing, with structured shoulders that added strength to the romantic gowns.
Monochromatic looks in matte fabrics and sensual silhouette added boldness and elegance to the collection in the form of one-color gowns. Maximalism was extended to the accessories with gold and oversized earings and sunglasses decorated with crystals.
“When Judy talked about this idea of goddesses, my mind immediately came back to my memories of the statues in Rome, of Botticelli, my point of view that is more Italian.”
Maria Grazia Chiuri joined forces with Judy Chicago to realize the idea of the show. So, on the first day of the couture season, we entered the birth canal of Chicago’s installation, there to watch Chiuri summon a golden host of goddesses onto a womb-shaped runway. The backdrop of the runaway featured a message “What if Women rued the world” as a strong statement from the designer to the world.
Over a six-month preparation, Chiuri’s conversation with Chicago birthed this idea about worship of goddesses and the struggle of women artists to find their own means of expression.
So there were the Dior goddesses, in Chiuri in shiffon and silk, walking in their Roman sandals, silken-fringe dresses conjured without stitching, one shoulder drappe dresses, wrap-over floor-length pleated shirtdress with a blouse and a skirt knotted to one side. The Gold color was dominant and big pieces of accessories were features with almost every look.

Rami Kadi’s Couture Spring-Summer 2020 comes at a point in time where world events are accelerating, and where climate change is relentless is in its pace and effects. The question becomes: is it still possible to reconcile the true with the beautiful?
Rami quest of beauty is beyond a beautiful face or figure, “The beautiful does not need embellishment, nor does it need filters. The beautiful is free-standing, and it is one and the same with reality. This is why only transparency is worthy of the beautiful. My quest is enhancing the beauty of what is real through transparency.” said the designer.
Couture SS 2020 makes use of sequins with different shapes and colours, as well as metallic laser-cut sequin sheets, crystal stones, coloured feather, tulle layers, prints on sequins, and printed 3D organza. The overall is a wild adventure of materials and feels that takes us into uncharted territories.Worth stopping at the fact that Couture SS 2020 features the first dress made completely from recycled plastic, in reference to the idea of turning the bad into good, and to the idea of environmental sustainability that permeates throughout the collection.
