Zuhair Murad proved once again why he is a celeb favorite with its spring 2013 couture show. The recent red carpet events where big names like Jennifer Lopez, Kaley Cuoco or Marion Cottilard donned the spectacular creations of the label definitely showed its potential to impress and the spring 2013 couture collection certainly strengthened the belief even more with a series of incredibly luxurious gowns that ooze sophistication and sex appeal. An amazing spectacular dress that makes one feel like a goddess is golden and the designer seems to have taken this principle literally considering the abundance of golden embellishments included in the new collection.
The designs ranged from modern, luxurious and fairly conservative to sexy and revealing. Still classiness is the defining principle behind every single new design offered. High slits, revealing necklines, bold sheer touches, luxurious details, intricate abstract patterns that exude opulence and spectacular asymmetric touches were just some of the elements that instantly mesmerized and truly made the new options raise the exquisite and privileged haute couture status. With a laser-like focus on a timeless allure with a few modern hints, the new options are destined to be desired for more than a single short season.
The long body-hugging evening dresses in lavishing gold, silver, champagne, blue or white featured some interesting and exquisite contrasts that felt completely natural. Complex embellishments, sequins and occasional baroque inspiration proved the right choice for mesmerizing the audience. The incredible merge between delicate elements and luxurious motifs never fail to deliver an outstanding set of options all throughout the show.
Bridal dresses were no less spectacular as the designer translated his unique glamorous vision into ethereal options any woman would feel incredible in. Given the spectacular craftsmanship and the complexity of the new looks, the need for amazing accessories was drastically reduced. A simple pair of strappy heels matches the tone of the amazing floor sweeping gowns that prove over and over again why Zuhair Murad has a leading role in influencing the ever-increasing demands of the label’s modern and sophisticated clientele.
