THE STORY OF SAAB: Come November, readers will be able to learn all about the life and business of Elie Saab. The designer has teamed up with the French writer Janie Samet, whom he has known since his first show, for an Assouline-published book.
Simply named “Elie Saab,” the oversize tome contains archival photographs, including shots by Laziz Hamani, and each chapter will detail a different stage of the brand. There will also be photos from Saab’s childhood and his early days as a designer.
