Zuhair Murad brought glam drama to Paris Fashion Week with the spring/summer 2017 ready-to-wear collection. Everything in the collection is amazing, intricately detailed and beautifully put together. The collection was shown at the Eighth Arrondissement in a mirrored showroom to put every angle of the looks on display where Zuhair Murad revealed that if he is “always repeating myself, there’s no challenge,” furthering that “it’s motivating to do something out of the ordinary.”
There are metal belts, see-through patterns, sheer panels dressed with sequins and embroidery galore. The accessories are insane catching the light from every angle in over embellished earrings and ear cuffs and stack and shaped rings throughout Zuhair Murad’s collection.
For those who like to be seen, this is the collection for you. Peplum and slinky silhouettes work together for a mainstream look that will be acceptable to a wide variety of people although they will look very individualistic in these outfits, no matter where they stand. Every look is perfect to be photographed in and great for any red carpet event.
The patterns are mesmerizing without being ‘too much’ and every piece is real wearable, which is not always the case when there is a lot of glam and drama involved. Thigh-high slits can be overpowering when done incorrectly, yet this is repeated in several looks in the collection but does not seem to be more than another beautiful detail.
Peplum is shown on more than one ensemble, but they do not appear the same. Each look is obviously very different meaning that there are well over 40 individual, standout jaw-droopingly gorgeous ensembles to choose from.
For those who prefer a pants set there are several to choose from that have sequin details over sheer panels – a stunning detail that is certain to receive a lot of due love. The super detailed patterns are created with sequins, pinholes for a cool see-through design that had to be planned out and obsessively carried out for such a perfect look.
The craftsmanship is so elaborate and well done that it is literally awe-inspiring. There are so many fantastic silhouettes that are in this collection that whatever your comfort level or personal style you are able to find something that will suit you.
Zuhair Murad’s spring/summer 2017 ready-to-wear collection is by far one of the best lineups to show during Paris Fashion Week, edging across the line of glamor and drama and blending the line together. This is especially obvious with the gowns and the caped pantsuit in look 39. These looks are so well done that they do not lock out certain ages, which can happen sometimes with certain embellishments.
Everything in this collection is impressive and breathtaking and has been noted as such across the board. It is so easy to find a look that is breathtaking for any personal style, as the attention to detail has obviously been incredibly focused. Any movie or television show that heavily features fashion in the way that Sex and the City did, for example, would likely showcase one of these pieces.
