The Couture Fall 2023 collection is an ode to the vitality and luminous power of dreams. The creators' imagination composes a poetic and colorful panorama, illuminated by the airy lines of garments designed to exalt self-confidence and femininity.
"This collection was imagined to celebrate hope and optimism. We have chosen soft colors and fluid silhouettes that evoke joy, gentleness, and freedom," says creative directors Georges and Jad Hobeika.
The show is a manifestation of novel ideas where renowned Chinese actress Fan BingBing joined the co-creatives’ dream and walked the runway with a mesmerizing, otherworldly appearance.
The expertise of the ateliers is expressed through the refinement of fabrics such as silk, duchess satin, organza, crepe chiffon, and georgette, as well as the sophistication of ornaments that highlight cascades of crystals, feathers, and pearls. They combine velvet weaves with precisely crafted iridescent swirls of petals.
A great variety of floral and botanical motifs flourish on delicate embroideries. This idyllic landscape, crowned with graceful flights of dragonflies, bears witness to the house's commitment to the ever-moving living nature.
The color palette unveils a subtle range dominated by pink, lilac, blue, and green. A plethora of accessories compliments this enchanting wardrobe: tulip belts, winged earrings, and crystallized flowers harmoniously blend nature and couture in service of elegance and the joy of living.
Finally, the bridal dress emerges as a breathtaking masterpiece within this collection of dreams. It represents the epitome of skillful craftsmanship and artistic expertise, as the creators have chosen to adorn it with delicate matte embroidery, evoking the ethereal allure of mist and the enchantment born from a vibrant imagination.
