Every year, Elie Saab’s enchanting couture collection is widely anticipated, the same way that most await the latest season of Game of Thrones. So imagine when the two came together at couture week, it didn’t fail to bless the world of fashion and literary enthusiasts with the most amazing combination ever. It seems Elie Saab is just like the rest of us who’s a major fan of the fantasy series.
For his Fall/Winter ’17 couture collection, the Lebanese-born designer created a range called “A Tale of Fallen Kings”, where it was packed with majestic and whimsical gowns that pay tribute to medieval fashion. The runway show was perfectly decorated in a way that it resembled The Great Hall of Winterfell.
The designs looked straight out of the landscapes of Westeros–some of it even truly resembled the wardrobe of the women from the show. From the dark, dramatic stylings that reminds us of Cersei Lannister to jewel-toned velvets and capes fit for Daenerys Targaryen, the fairytale-inspired line is essentially all about extravagance.
Check out these 5 gowns from the collection that we can imagine every character from GoT will don as they rule their lands in style.
Reflective of her multifaceted Machiavellian character, the queen of the Seven Kingdoms’ gowns are usually dark and dramatic, which precisely matches this heavily embellished piece with gilded accents.
It’s not difficult to imagine this draped couture gown on the Mother of Dragons as she conquers the lands. Its cape adorned with silver embellishments perfectly matches her style.
Queen Margaery has always been known for her wardrobe with alluring cuts, silhouettes and accents. Similarly, this emerald green dress comes with a plunging neckline, and its studded with gold floral beadwork that don’t fail to charm too.
Nobody wears a fiery red dress like the Red Priestess of Asshai. Saab surely created this red gown having Melisandre in mind as it features a sexy silhouette with a leg-bearing slit.
The aspiring queen Sansa Stark loves hoods and capes, which fits her winter-accustomed style. This gown features a cape with a matching hood for a regal Northerner aesthetic.
