Paris, May 14 - Designer, Elie Saab, has opened his much anticipated first retail store in Paris. Elie Saab Paris is located at the renowned 1, Rond-Point des Champs Elysees. Occupying close to 11,000 square feet, the boutique showcases Saab's ready-to-wear and accessories collections along with a separate couture salon and atelier to service private, VIP and celebrity clients.

"I wanted it to feel like a glamorous gallery of women's apparel," says Saab. Designed by internationally recognized architect, Chakib Richani, the three level store epitomizes a sophisticated modernist aesthetic showcasing rich materials including marble and specialty glass which mirrors the design of the Elie Saab flagship in Beirut. With the opening of additional Elie Saab stores, expansion into key international markets is planned to further develop the Elie Saab ready-to-wear and accessories collections.
