When the gray sky took its place over Paris, Ingie Chalhoub reminded the world of the Mediterranean Sea’s romantic dreamier side. The Spring Summer collection combined fluidity with vivid corals and turquoise.
The designer spread her message through flowing pantsuits and long skirts, employing satin, crepe, organza, and tulle. With a light sea breeze, those short coral-colored dresses would just fly around. Bright ankle high fishnets and matching heels completed the look, extending the crimsons orange tones to the tips of the pointy-toed heels.
“I am very fond of corals myself, I have them at home – and sea stars and mother of pearl as well,” said Chalhoub describing her Mediterranean obsession, as she warmly embraced a steady stream of friends and well-wishers after the show. The French-Lebanese origin, who shuttles between Dubai and her workshops in Paris, had the Eastern reaches of the sea in mind when she came up with the idea for Spring Summer show.
