ELIE SAAB presents its first Eyewear Collection for the Spring/ Summer 2017. A sophisticated collection of sunglasses, celebrating a luxurious, modern femininity. Retaining the Maison’s reputation of innate elegance and aesthetic codes, the eyewear collection reflects the brand’s values of unique and refined design.
Manufactured using the highest quality components and the most qualitative techniques, the sunglasses are the result of the finest “Made in Italy” craftsmanship, presenting exquisite features, such as Swarovski crystals and precious gold-plated finishing.
The shapes range from classic squared models to round and aviator designs, all conveying the refined DNA of ELIE SAAB and the lightness that is characteristic of the house.
The color palette is elegant and subtle, with gold and palladium tones paired with shaded exclusive ZEISS lenses guaranteeing clear and sharp vision, as well as durability, scratch resistance and protection from UV rays. The antireflective Gold ET treatment adds a touch of elegance and comfort to the styles, enhancing the collection’s premium quality with unique tones inspired by the delicate shades of the house creations.
COURONNE – Inspired by the foliage motif recurrent in ELIE SAAB creations, these delicate sunglasses celebrate a modern femininity in a dream-like atmosphere. The round or aviator shapes are enhanced by gold-plated finishing and unique ZEISS lenses with a subtle light gold mirror effect.
The round style (mod. ES 001/s) is available in gold with brown lenses and greige acetate or gold with grey lenses and black acetate.
The aviator style (mod. ES 002/S) is available in gold with brown lenses and greige acetate
CHAINE – The modern design and precious materials of these sunglasses are enhanced by fine twisted metal wires, adding sophistication to the pure round and squares frames. Gold-plated finishing and exclusive ZEISS lenses with a light gold mirror effect emphasize the feeling of preciousness, while a special gold-plated palladium-plated chain is the ultimate accessory completing these unique proposals.
The squared style (mod. ES 003/S) is available in gold with grey lenses and palladium with green lenses.
The round style (mod. ES 004/S) is available in gold with brown lenses and palladium with burgundy lenses.
DIAMANT – Echoing the most exquisite ELIE SAAB creations, these metal sunglasses are embellished with gorgeous net of Swarovski crystals in different sizes, inspired by the unique embroideries that adorned the Haute Couture collections and which are carefully placed one by one by high skilled artisans. The thick lenses feature a unique diamond cut, adding preciousness and subtle shading effects to the visual experience.
The style is available in gold with brown lenses and Swarovski crystals or in gold with burgundy lenses and Swarovski crystals.

About ELIE SAAB
Elie Saab founded his own atelier in Beirut at the age of 18. Attentive service, refined silhouettes and a talent for embroidery propelled the young self-taught designer to present his Haute Couture collections in Paris beginning in 2000; ready-to-wear followed in 2005. Since opening a boutique and couture salons at the Rond-Point des Champs-Elysées in 2007, the House of ELIE SAAB has continued developing its ready-to-wear and accessories collections to accompany different dimensions of a woman’s life. The ELIE SAAB universe expanded further in 2011, when the designer launched a signature perfume.
ELIE SAAB retains the innate elegance and femininity on which its reputation was built: elegant tailoring, noble materials and sumptuous detailing.
