Zuhair Murad Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

Eclectic, sultry and at times even quite unconventional: Zuhair Murad plays with different styles, often combining them together, in what could be entitled as ‘love it or hate it’ Zuhair Murad pre-fall 2016 collection. The 38-piece lineup is, in fact, a well-tailored potpourri of various fabrics, colors and motifs, the main protagonist of which can be found in the multiplicity of different botanical and animal prints, at times mixed together. What’s more surprising though is that Zuhair Murad managed to even gorgeously combine some pieces and hues that normally nobody would ever think of sporting together on a daily basis (let’s take, for instance, the black and brown combination that no one would probably ever dare to wear, but Murad somehow made it look morally acceptable).

Zuhair Murad Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

The collection’s fil rouge is the sophisticated glam rock/gothic chic girl, who fearlessly wears spunky outfits from sunset to dawn. The daytime pieces are, in fact, full of personality too, even if they are mainly showcasing prints and cuts that would look pretty delicate in other collections. Murad’s parallel fashion universe uncannily proves to be our own universe’s antithesis, as it always subverts the conventional norms muddling up what we conventionally regard as trendy.

The lineup could be divided into four main sections, wherein everything got translated into Murad’s unique perception of style. While the first two sections showcase some interesting daytime options, the remaining parts focus more on evening frocks and night out looks. Intensifying the ‘glam rock vibes’, Zuhair Murad starts off with some floral looks that daringly enhance the figure without being too curve-hugging thanks to sheer fabrics and biker jackets.

Loose silhouettes and sensual detailing definitely make up Murad’s winning formula, and at this point it appears clear he really can’t get enough of it. As we browse through the lineup, we meet a different kind of daytime look, wherein loungewear gets mixed up with glam rock creating contrasting patterns and quirky outcomes. The uncontested protagonists of this section surely are the cozy-looking wrap coats in light brown and light blue Serenity.

Besides lace, silky fabrics and leather, these very first two sections also include handmade floral embroideries and metallic studs that alongside the ruches and frills create just perfect yin and yang looks. The same fabrics, lace and frill detailing could be found in the other sections too, although being used and combined quite differently.

While the daytime proposals definitely look stronger and sassier, the nighttime outfits give the collection a more sensual and sophisticated turn. The first nighttime section may be regarded as a natural glam rock continuum of the daytime designs, with the floral patterns getting combined with lace fabrics to create a sort of dreamy gothic-chic appeal. Then Murad adds animal prints and strikingly well-tailored total black looks that effortlessly spice up the entire collection thanks to some deep sweetheart necklines, jabot collars, structured layers, see-through fabrics and hourglass figures.

Lastly, it is interesting to mention how he managed to keep the glam rock vibes alive just by adding leather pointy-toe shoes to his most naïve proposals too.
