Elie Saab’s Exhibition at Four Seasons Hotel
During the Spring 2014 Ready-to-Wear Paris Fashion Week, the Four Seasons Hotel George V has welcomed an installation of Elie Saab’s Haute Couture designs, handpicked by the designer himself, until Sunday, October 6th.
The exhibition is curated by Jeff Leatham, Four Seasons’ artistic director and showcases six dresses from Saab’s Fall 2013 Haute Couture collection.
In the hotel lobby, six ruby-red and silver-grey evening gowns have been mounted on mirrored Plexiglas podiums and encircled by red Naomi roses. At the center of the lobby, beneath a crystal chandelier, stands an evening gown made of silk tulle and lace with an embroidered cape. Meanwhile, the collection’s wedding dress, a tulle gown embroidered with semi-precious stones, beads, and crystals, is featured in the hallway and surrounded by white Avalanche roses.
“Oprah once said one of the biggest luxuries in life is to have flowers at home on a daily basis. I couldn’t agree more,” noted Leatham, who is reputed for his floral artwork and arrangements well beyond the Four Seasons, counting Oprah Winfrey, Madonna, Suzy Menkes, and the Dalai Lama among his clients.
