The Lebanese designer took style cues from Mexico for his spring / summer 2020 collection

He's from Lebanon and was unveiling his latest couture collection in Paris but for spring / summer 2020, Elie Saab had his sights set on Mexico.

The designer presented his latest imaginings as part of the French capital's Haute Couture Week on Wednesday, January 22, showcasing a dreamy affair of fluid fabrics, theatrical capes and scatterings of embellishment.

"The collection features delicately embroidered shapes and forms inspired by an Imperial Mexico," Saab's atelier posted on Instagram following the show.
