Critics have scolded Saab in the past for pandering to his clientele by relying on a single – albeit popular – cinched-waist in both his couture and ready-to-wear.For spring-summer 2014 couture, Saab brought out all the tricks, including panniers, which date back about 400 years when aristocratic women would wear metal frames under their pettiskirts to accentuate their hips.For those women who prefer not to wear relics of 17th century garb, Saab used very thin belts camouflaged in the color of the dress to draw the eye to the waistline.One of Alma-Tadema's works, "The Roses of Heliogabalus" (1888), shows thousands of rose petals painted from life blanketing Emperor Elagabalus' guests in his legendary attempt to suffocate them with flowers.In his summer collection, Saab deviated from his cinched waist in favor of a looser empire waist that flared out from the ribcage, a likely ode to the dresses depicted in Alma-Tadema's classical scenes.
