Designers Serge Ruffieux and Lucie Meier designed a monochrome creative elemental duality, masculine and feminine, in a show that riffed on menswear tailoring and draping. Delivered on rather low-key sandal flats with Cleopatra-style eye make-up.
The Elie Saab collection was inspired by New York’s golden age of the 20’s and 30’s. The colours were creams, burgundy, dark blues and blacks, featuring rich embroidered fabrics with feathers, crystals and pearls. Velvet capes and evening dresses with strong necklines.
