Elie Saab To Design Three Mega-Yachts; Concept To Debut At Abu Dhabi Boat Show In February

TORONTO, CANADA — Designer Elie Saab signed a contract with the company WEYVES to partner on the creation of three mega yachts, according to a press release received by Elite Traveler.

Saab will conceptualize and provide creative direction on the interior design aspects and the external line for these exclusive luxury yachts. The first yacht will be revealed at the Abu Dhabi Yacht Show in February 2010.

“I always sought to incarnate my vision of modernity and elegance beyond the conventional limits of fashion,” declares Saab. “To envision the designs of yachts and to conceive the art of living which accompanies them are an exceptional opportunity to expand a brand’s universe through creating the experience of unsurpassable luxury.”

“We are delighted about this collaboration with the fashion house of Elie Saab, a designer and a brand that fits naturally within the context of extreme luxury,” Donald Potard explains for Weyves Couture. “A design project of this nature enables the couturier to express the universe of Elie Saab in the form of interior design and the art of living”

Wevyes Couture is a concept created in partnership between Weyves and Donald Potard, Founder of Agent de Luxe, to produce luxury yachts branded by internationally acclaimed fashion designers.
