Zuhair Murad Fall 2016 RTW: Las Vegas By Night

Opulence at its purest and a suitcase full of clothes to wear on the wildest nights while driving through the Route 66, the newest Zuhair Murad fall/winter 2016-2017 ready-to-wear collection may have been showcased at the Hôtel Plaza Athénée at Paris Fashion Week, but surely has its heart in the USA. The collection features everything you have ever wished to wear while partying hard at a glam rock club in L.A. or while drinking a glass of champagne in Las Vegas or even, why not, when attending a fancy chic pool party in Miami. Some of the outfits unveiled could just be perfect to wear to any edgy salon in New York City.

Zuhair Murad Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 RTW - Paris Fashion Week

Zuhair Murad’s opulence is particularly vivid thanks to the incredibly rich in texture garments, wherein fur got combined with silk, velvet, sensual lace embroideries and even risqué see-through patterns (which we bet will go quickly sold-out among many celebrities). Edgy leather designs, on the other hand, inevitably contribute to reinforcing the whole glam-rock vibe of the collection, as they got mixed with pleated skirts, marine-inspired jackets and ankle boots as well.

Overall curve-hugging, the fabrics used for the collection help delicately wrap the figures too, especially when featuring sensual overalls with lace floral embroideries or wide belts. Entitled by many as ‘Biker Baroque’, Zuhair Murad’s autumnal style in nothing but pure sensuality and self-confidence, and this could be also due to the Las Vegas-inspired proposals that remind of Cher’s looks in the Nineties. Mini wrap dresses, dramatic fringed gowns and sheer Chantilly lace frocks could be closely linked to most of the Nineties divas’ looks, as they effortlessly celebrate any woman’s figure.

The Zuhair Murad fall 2016 ready-to-wear collection isn’t, however, just about the Nineties, as for being able to celebrate the L.A. rocker subcultures it clearly needed some Eighties motifs too. And that’s precisely where the ‘Biker Baroque’ pattern comes magnificently out with all its androgynous proposals, squared bolero jackets, deep squared necklines and, of course, super-skinny leather pants as well.

Given the fact that both the Eighties and Nineties were the collection’s main sources of inspiration, the color palette is unavoidably dark meaning that black is almost the sole protagonist. However, it’s possible to spot both gloomy gauzy attire options and minuscule colorful patters such as floral motifs throughout the whole collection, not to mention the sultry transparencies that help lighten the many total-black proposals. Murad left enough room to showcase his abilities with solid-colored fancy dresses as well, proposing the collection’s initial patters even in cobalt blue, blush pink and burgundy.

In the end, we may rightly state that Zuhair Murad definitely tried to reinvent his signature patterns, however remaining true to his signature femininity and grace (and that’s not that easy for sure!).
