Ziad Nakad Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2014

Contrary to popular non-fashion blogger belief - there can Never be too many pretty dresses. Ever. And Lebanese designer Ziad Nakad has proven just that with his breathtaking treasury of couture gowns for Fall/Winter 2014. In a world where only 2% of the population can afford such lavish decadence, I am convinced that this collection should be part of that splendor.

A ruby reverie fires up this exquisite range with crystal drizzled evening dresses that accentuate the female form in all the right places. Mermaid dresses are unsparingly embellished with intricate beadwork and dainty floral embroideries. The volume of detail involved in each dress is profound, Nakad's complex sense of design and use of opulent fabrics create an equipoise of sensual glamour and regal sophistication.

Sapphire, violet and emerald gowns enrich the jewel themed collection, with softer hues present in mint, lilac, ivory and gold. Sheer tulle and chiffon are heavily contrasted with densely sparkled droplets that have been hand-beaded onto low-neck bodices and fishtail skirts. Ziad Nakad propels the art of couture into a new state of grace.

This is a look at Ziad Nakad's bedazzling Fall/Winter 2014 Haute Couture Collection.

I don't even know what to say. I couldn't pick one, they are all absolutely stunning! All fairly similar style and it's certainly the style of dresses I would absolutely love to wear! Maybe the white with naked shoulders and the narrow black rim at the top is the one I would like to wear the most. Happy week, Sam!

OMG!! i am in shock! they are the most beautiful dresses I have seen in my life. I really like all of them but my favourite colours are number 2, 3 and 4. Kisses, Sam.
You are always so kind in your lovely comments. Thank you very much, I wish you the perfect week.

Lilli said...

Hi Sam, hope you had a nice weekend! As many times I've told you, Lebanese designers are my ever favs, they always dress women in such unique feminine way, and Ziad Nakad is again the proof. I'm drooling over all the collection, which is really impressive for the colors, the wovens and the ultra sophisticated lines. I daydream about all the sets honestly, but if I really have to choose, sets 1, 3 and 6 are definitely my choices. Happy Monday and December my friend, hope it will be joyful and merry for you! Kisses! xo

Peet said...

You couldn't be more right, this is bedazzling and crystal drizzled to the max! And I love them all, especially the green ones, the far left one would look great on Rihanna. It might look ok on me too, but I'd have nowhere to go in a gown like that.:D I love the 'scenery' too, those dry leaves are a great touch.

Hope you have a successful week ahead of you, dear. Go conquer the world!!!;)
