Zuhair Murad SS2013

Feb 21, 13 Zuhair Murad SS2013

Artificially aged gold jewelry, richness of reliefs, covered with patina as an echo of ancient frescos, the virtuosity of the arches of Italian Baroque sculptor Antonio Raggi, an aesthetic shock of Roman churches and… a thrilling song of an angel. The new haute couture collection “Golden Age” of Zurair Murad, which was already called a pinnacle of the Lebanese designer creation by many fashion critics, combines elements of spiritual luxury and exalted femininity.

The heroine of Zuhair, according to him, is glamorous, but by no means vulgar. Her luxurious wardrobe, with no place for ordinariness, is inspired by sculptural creations of the late Renaissance, but at the same time is the most up-to-date. Evening dresses, that turn a woman into a queen, have been already appreciated by many Hollywood celebrities, shining in Zuhair Murad gowns on red carpets of high-society events around the world.

Cascades of tulle and chiffon, embroidery, custom made by the pillars of French haute couture – Vermont and Lesage houses; deep lateral slits; brocade suit with open back; mini-dresses, designed like a corset; transparent fabric with micro-pearls, “tattooed” on it as if it was a skin; the cape, embroidered with rooster feathers, hand dyed be the craftsmen of Lemarié atelier. By bringing together the best Parisian masters of haute couture, which helped him in his work on the collection, Zuhar Murad created a real work of art in each look. The apogee of the show was the bodysuit, entirely embroidered with gold sequins and pearls.

The shades of pale blue, ice, pale green and pale pink only accentuate the base color motif that is concordant with the name of the collection – gold.
