Known for his beautifully executed and elegant designs, Zuhair Murad's new couture collection once again did not disappoint, being exactly where it was expected to be in terms of exquisiteness. The runway was embraced with 45 different looks, in which Murad captured the essence of femininity sans effort. The graceful and detailed evening wear collection was simply captivating, carrying the spectators into wonderland of luster and glistening sparkle. The pieces varied from deep shades of mauve, blue and green to the more subtle worlds of nudes and black. The designs danced alluringly with their immaculately tailored lace bodices or soft draping. The allure of the pieces embodied a luxury like none other, and Murad's combination of structured lines with the softer, vein-like patterns were most definitely tantalizing. From short dresses to evening gowns and even to a lace covered bodysuit and a finishing wedding gown, Zuhair Murad envisaged an extremely exquisite and chic line. The elegance and class of his collection was without a doubt, indicating that Murad shows no signs of slowing down in his beautiful representations of style.
Top 2 Looks
The looks I selected as my Top 2 were both quite bold pieces. The 11th and 26th looks simply embraced the classic feel of quality evening wear with a unique twist. The combination of the basics with the unusual is what truly caught my attention with these pieces.
Murad's 11th look topped my list. The flowing skirt overlay is absolutely stunning in combination with the lace long sleeve. It simply exudes luxury and elegance, which is why I find this dark piece to be so alluring.
The 26th look was simply breathtaking; there is no other way to describe this single-sleeved blue gown. The embroidered vines and the illusion of its asymmetrical bodice through the folds in the chiffon make this dress truly one-of-a-kind.
