The famous Lebanese fashion designer's signature label has unveiled its Resort 2017 collection, drawing inspiration from Japanese culture and its various contrasts. The result is a diverse mix of references ranging from the classic kimono to young kawaii kitsch to the country's emblematic cherry blossom.

As well as channeling strong Japanese influences, the Elie Saab Resort 2017 collection has a highly feminine undercurrent, showing bare shoulders, cinched waists and semi-split skirts. The collection's many asymmetrical effects accentuate this feminine style that's both sensual and sexy.

Contrasting silhouettes

For this new collection, Elie Saab juxtaposes the different facets of Japanese culture, from ceremonial rituals to urban pop culture.

Resort 2017 is a graphic and feminine collection that features ample, generous cuts -- particularly in sleeves -- broken up with large braided belts, echoing the obi belts that accompany kimonos. Certain designs also use cascading frills and pleating.

Asymmetrical cuts are often used around necklines and sleeves, as well as in skirts, accentuating the energy and buoyancy of the collection's silhouettes.

Like many luxury labels, Elie Saab brings an urban touch to the collection too, with hooded sweaters and bomber jackets embellished with leather flowers and perforated detailing.

Sweet springtime vibes

Cherry blossom, an emblematic symbol of Japan works its way into patterns on certain pieces in the collection, whether on lace, tulle or used as brooches. Embroidery, a signature embellishment of the Elie Saab label, has also succumbed to floral influences, creating technicolor 3D flowers on dresses and bomber jackets.

The generally soft, springlike color palette is lifted by a few brighter, more vibrant shades. Lavender and porcelain hues contrast with shades such as mandarin orange, mimosa yellow and black cherry.
