Zuhair Murad Couture Spring/Summer 2016 Collection

We have said it time and again and we shall say it once more: the Lebanese are truly gifted in their fashion sense. Throughout the Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week, we have seen a struggle between the truly couture and that which simply passes as such because of the need to market to a larger audience. While we agree that selling the creations is certainly quite important, it is equally as such not to lose sight of what constitutes couture: the artistry of it all. To this end, the Zuhair Murad Couture spring/summer 2016 collection unveiled exquisite designs that are so artistic and couture, while also promising to sell well!

Zuhair Murad Couture Spring/Summer 2016 Collection

Where some designers did not quite succeed in moving away from ready-to-wear, others such as Valentino, Viktor & Rolf, and more, have been able to capture the essence of the week and present to us a show that is not likely to be forgotten anytime soon. As per usual, the Lebanese stick to the top, with Elie Saab and the incredible Zuhair Murad holding top positions for their ability to balance the sheets, so to say, and bring us sheer beauty that will shine like a diamond on the red carpet, worn by the cream of the crop.

It is really hard to describe the 51-piece long Zuhair Murad Couture spring 2016 collection. We shall try though. Every name in the book, from dazzling to astounding, stunning, alluring, amazing, striking, fabulous, magnificent, enthralling and brilliant come to mind, though. The Zuhair Murad looks are near impossible to replicate, at least not in the same charm and beauty, with the same captivating essence, should it become necessary for whatever reason. The artist is one and only and his works are for the stars who shine as bright as his clothing looks do.

Long gowns or short birdcage dresses, organza skirts and slits up the thigh, long sleeved body suits and purely white pantsuits, all come in a single package of awesome. We see nymphs from the forests and modern day princesses, sophistication and flirty fun all mixed in at once. We find silver belts and lovely headwear, golden strap sandals and embroidered lace running across the décolletage and down the arms.

Actually, we can easily say now that the long sleeve trend is huge and plans to stick around for a long while yet. As for another trend, we have noticed the candy colors in pastel, other than the coral pink, and have fallen in love all over again. Who would not, with the lilac grays and the pale pink, the stark whites and sunshine yellows, each color seen on lace giving you more food for thought. Yellow or grey? Pink or blue? Just grab them all and be done with it.

The Zuhair Murad Couture spring/summer 2016 collection is positively exquisite, meaning that nearly every piece is going on our wish list and we hope some wealthy people out there decide to give us some Zuhair Murad gifts…
