Polar Princesses for Fall-Winter 2015/2016 by Zuhair Murad
For the cold season of 2015/2016, Zuhair Murad heads for the high peaks, driven by a desire for their unspoiled glacial purity.
Satins smooth as the driven snow, flurries of organza, a blizzard of layered tulles, polar prints, a veritable ice storm of diamante, beading and sequins, all translate into a show of snowflake sensuality and elegance, an ice-cool pinnacle of luminous charm.
The frisson of graphic prints, the abstraction of an arctic landscape, impressions of scintillating freshness take centre stage with slender, clear-cut profiles - princesses of the icy steppes radiating charisma and romance.
Cool light of day: a cascade of suits, crisp jackets and minis, the sensuality of second-skin jumpsuits, tunic dresses in geometric figures.
Cocktail hour: skater skirts and leotard tops go jubilantly off piste, their blithe pirouettes certain to raise the temperature…
Evening on the slopes: an avalanche of party glamour, flowing majestic sheaths and enfolding lines with, here and there, an embroidery or lace panel to heighten a starry silhouette…
Cool colours of the aurora borealis - midnight blue, emerald green, amethyst - make the running.
The colours of glaciers (ice-blue, cloud, silver, violet, pink) bestow a boreal transparency.
Bathed in the intense shimmer of a fairy-tale winterworld, capes and basques, sexy asymmetry glide in quintessentially feminine majesty, radiating simultaneous power and fragility yet always intent on breaking the ice and reflecting modernity at its most enticingly subtle.
