Zuhair Murad Haute Couture Spring Summer 2019 Paris Fashion Week.
This season Zuhair Murad’s creative spirit took a deep dive to the ocean floor. It is at the sight of the richness of the oceanic world, of this encounter between hues, textures and movements, that the collection was born.
A rich palette with organic elegance, refined yet still modern, has emerged. A jet black strapless bustier dress is enhanced with shining tone-on-tone ruffles, in silk chiffon or lurex, like a wave that would envelop the body of the one who lives in it. An openwork design with cape sleeves and flowing draperies evolves in shades of deep blue.
Inspired by the limitless horizon of the sea, when the glittering ocean melts into the night sky,
Zuhair Murad has offered his own graphic and luxurious interpretation with surgical precision.
Architectural but delicate, each model offers a fluid elegance. Beaded armholes close to the body retrace the natural grooves of sea-shells – all reworked in silke tulle or gauze.
A split skirt with multiple levels of transparency transforms the skin into a luminescent touch,
draping is both glazed and diaphanous. The mother-of-pearl , made to shine both in a literal
and symbolic way, appears in the form of beadwork, pleats, embroidery and radiant stitching.
In harmony with her environment but in control of her life, the woman Zuhair Murad combines strength of character and instinct with the greatest grace.
