Zuhair Murad Haute Couture A/W 2015-2016 Collection.
Cobalt lighting warmed the atmosphere at Zuhair Murad, throwing pastels in sharp contrast to the blue tint that colored everything else. Guests floated in this otherworldly ambience until the twinkling backdrop of the runway supernova-ed into a cape beset with twinkling crystals. White crystals twinkled with red ones. Far from the old „blood on bandages“ adage against diamond-ruby pairings, these gradually eased into the multifaceted wonders of wild space. From then on, we had lift off.
As a whole, it was very much a collection treading the fine line between burnishing the brand’s image and offering starting points for its clients‘ orders of the season. To wit, high-waisted briefs under sheer star embroideries were certainly a sexy skyclad look, but a less daring client could always order a beautiful lining to complement this proposal. Elsewhere, this weightless impression continued as every step forward revealed the sheer pleats hidden behind burgundy lamé. This collection was rife with awareness of little tricks that delight the wearer.
