Couture Week continues with the spellbinding Fall 2014 collection of one of my favourites, Zuhair Murad. The Lebanese designer gives his illustrious gowns an architectural format this season, with sculpted shoulders, angled necklines and exaggerated hips. The strong geometric shapes are softened by billowing drapes in silk mousseline, duchess satin and chiffon.
Constructed in classic monochromes, aquamarine, cobalt blue, raspberry and shimmering silver, this jewel box of cocktail couture and ravishing evening wear finds its inspiration in the visionary works of architect Zaha Hadid. Her artful paintings are glorified in a colourful swirl of digitally printed looks seen in Set 3. Society Girls can bookmark the ritzy mini dresses in Set 1 for their many party and premiere appearances.
Undulating waves glisten across sea blue gowns in Sets 4 and 5, capturing the light with circuitous beadwork that curl out into swishing skirts. Murad also considers his executive client's less formal affairs, introducing sophisticated trouser sets and luxurious jumpsuits in Set 6, elegantly polished off by embellished blazers.
Set 8's entrancing ruby gowns will surely entice Murad's long list of celebrity fans like Jennifer Lopez, Taylor Swift and Blake Lively. The collection culminates with a starry array of glittering silver and white gowns that decadently drip in scintillating crystals and sequins.
This is a view into the stunning Fall 2014 Couture Collection from Zuhair Murad.
