Lebanese designer Elie Saab sold his first creations in his hometown as a teenager, opening his couture atelier in Beirut in 1982. Invited to show in Paris in 2000 by the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture, he is recognised globally for his impeccable dressmaking skills. Beirut remains his main source of inspiration and to this day everything made in his studio has to be approved by the designer himself, in person. The label's range of coats include capes, boleros, trenches, winter coats and cocoon styles. Crafted from the finest fur, wool, cashmere and mohair, they epitomise luxury.
