Elie Saab submerged his fabulous and luxurious eveningwear signatures in a theme that was inspired by all things oceanic for Spring. A colorful aquatic print was splattered across red carpet-ready gowns, leg-baring shifts, mini dresses with plunging necklines, and billowing maxis: all anchored with classic black and white strappy sandals. Ombré numbers mimicked the way the sunrise and sunset hits the water in orange, turquoise, and teal.

The catwalk was afloat with pelagic hues inspired by the waters of the Amalfi Coast — a teal dress with a belted PVC waist, a billowing draped vermilion number, a cobalt long-sleeve frock with a waterfall hem, and a showstopping white embellished design that showed flashes of skin with sheer insets while capturing the frothy feel of the tide with a cape back. The Seventies were alive with sexy sheer lace dresses, menswear-inspired blazers, silky skinny scarves hanging languidly from the neck, and head-turning jumpsuits with flare legs.

Décolletage and collarbones were exposed with the plunging neckline of a baby blue lace halter gown, a white bomber jacket left unzipped for a sultry spin on sporty chic, the low-cut front of a black jumpsuit with lace insets and a train with an embellished back, and a button-front blouse with sheer lace sleeves left undone. A paillette-embellished playsuit was flirty and fun, while a lace jumpsuit with long sleeves, a belted waist, and pleated trousers was undeniably bridal. Slits were everywhere from a sultry, lace-detailed gown to a shimmering halter number with an edgy studded belt. Sportswear was on display though it had a seductive spin: leggy shorts, office-appropriate white pants, and tab-front cropped bottoms.

There is nothing on earth that Saab does better than eveningwear and he outdid himself with a plunging neckline gown with a belt accentuating the waist of its full pocketed skirt, a cape sleeve number that was refreshingly retro, an embellished peplum top, and a sheer adorned design whose decoration imitated the outward flow of the ocean. A black slit-front dress with a bedecked bodice was made for the likes of a movie premiere and a simple draped gown with long sleeves and a boat neckline could be uplifted with va-va-voom hair, makeup, and accessories.
