Zuhair Murad’s New Collection Looks Like Something Straight Out Of A Fairytale
We want to don one of these gossamer-thin gowns and run through a meadow, stat.
Paris’ Couture Fashion Week is almost at an end, with a host of European labels such as Chanel and Dior having displayed their fairytale pieces on the catwalk.
However the Middle East’s fashion industry was also well-represented at the five-day affair, with several Lebanese labels presenting their collections.
Among them was Zuhair Murad, who took to the runway on Tuesday to showcase his Autumn/Winter 2017-2018 haute couture line.
And while the designer’s pieces are always fit for a royal, the collection that floated down the catwalk looked like something straight out of an age-old fairytale book.
With whispers of tulle, twinkling embellishments and sweeping trains, the collection felt like a modern take on A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
And we were most definitely enchanted. Here’s our pick of the top 10 looks from the catwalk…
If Narnia’s Ice Queen got really into haute couture, we reckon she’d really dig this wintry floor-sweeper adorned with sparkling shards.
This translucent cape manages to blend the powerful and the ethereal with total ease.
This light-as-air, cornflower-hued gown, embroidered with delicate bay laurel-inspired leaves, is given weight with a dramatic train.
Almost every piece was imbued with a glimmering element of flora and fauna, but the real star here is that softly draped cowl neck.
A subtle polka dot gives extra depth to this monochromatic midi.
A gauzy stole adds even more romance to a princessy blush-pink ballgown (and bonus marks for the pockets).
The city hall wedding dress of our dreams.
Artfully placed lashings of ostrich feather create a soothingly fluid silhouette.
It’s like someone managed to capture the essence of a bonfire sparkler in a gown.
The fact you can’t even detect the neckline of this mesh-embroidered cape demonstrates the label’s expert touch with delicate fabrics.
