PARIS PRE-FALL 2014: Elie Saab
These are my favorite looks from Elie Saab's Pre-Fall 2014 collection. While the use of blocking might be more obvious with the colors, it exists in other pieces through the strategic use of fabrics. Sheer and satin fabrics are more muted than velvet and leather fabrics. Laces can be deep or muted depending on the fiber. This leads to some interesting tone on tone fabric blocking. I find garments like that to be more wearable than their color blocking counterparts.
