Accessories made a big debut on the Elie Saab Paris fashion runway today. "Accessories are a big development for the house," commented Saab.

"I wanted to work with a different style of woman for this collection; A woman who works at home, a woman who vacations on a yacht, a woman who attends evening soirees. I didn't want to use too many muses this time," confided Saab after the show.
Elie Saab Spring Summer  11 Paris Collection
Elie Saab's Paris Spring Summer '11 collection shown today in the Jardin des Tuileries is what the designer is calling his "70's Delight."
