ZUHAIR MURAD | SS 2014 HAUTE COUTURE
Often confused confused with the work of Elie Saab, Zuhair Murad's -aside from sharing the same nationality- and Elie both share a passion for quality craftsmanship and intricate detail in their embroidery.
This Spring Haute Couture collection was not the exception of their high standards.
The fine detail in the sheer and laced embroidered fine fabrics accessorized only by gold toned metal leaf belts, the gowns were the center of attention. Exquisite sheer fabrics shyly revealing only the necessary amount of skin without being blatantly vulgar, Zuhair Murad's created a modest variety of styles in his haute couture collection to appeal not only to his loyal clientele but to a newer generation of high society couture enthusiasts as well.
From long sleeve off-the-shoulder sweetheart neckline peplumed top with a knee length laced A-line skirt in the same style, to a sensual plunged V-neck black and white striped dress as well as a beautiful tailored double-breasted V-neckline blazer gown with a sensually opening to a modest slit featuring also a black strapless sweetheart neckline princess ball gown.
While the color palette was indeed a little shy from the true reflection of the variety of the plants of spring, the collection was far from a cliché of spring flowers and immature tones, it was indeed a refined and mature collection suitable for any age creating modest and elegant as well as sensual and curvier silhouettes.
