A red-carpet favourite among Hollywood royalty such as Angelina Jolie and Rihanna since 1982, it was only a matter of time before Elie Saab turned his hand and flair for romantic elegance to something big - like, really big.
Having been beguiled by his jaw-dropping gowns and breathtaking wedding dresses since the label’s infancy, fellow Elie Saab fans will rejoice at the news that the infamous Lebanese designer is turning his hand to real-estate.
Saab Residences is the first interiors venture of its kind for the Damour-born designer. The project, in collaboration with Dubai real estate development company Emaar, is set to be part of a 20-tower residential community in Dubai Harbour called Emaar Beachfront.
While further details on the project are yet to be announced, Emaar is keeping our interests peaked by teasing titillating details on social media and has revealed a selected number of features of the newly announced residences on its website.
The tower will house between one and four bedroom apartments, each with their own private balcony boasting exceptional views of Palm Jumeirah and the Arabian Gulf. As well as being able to live within Elie Saab’s ethereal and romantic world, residence at the Saab designed apartments can enjoy direct access to a private beach and numerous dining options within the building itself, not to mention a host of "luxury resort-style amenities".
Is this the hottest new real-estate ticket in town? We think it just might be.
