For its Fall/Winter 2017, Zuhair Murad draws its inspiration from Sixties femininity and style: Françoise Hardy’s eyeliner, Marianne Faithfull’s long bangs or Brigitte Bardot’s baby doll dresses in ‘Belle de Jour’.
A sense of youth and freedom sweeps over the pieces, giving the fashion of that time a contemporary and graphic twist. Each garment is achieved in the utmost artisanal quality, yet aimed at a woman with a fast paced life. A macramé mini-dress is adorned with sequins, elevating a simple design to an outfit that can be worn both a day and evening wear. An ensemble composed of a tweed waistcoat and matching shorts, is paired with a pussy bow blouse. A tartan suit embellished with delicate ruffles is combined with wide pleated trousers and high-heeled Mary-Jane sandals. This allure infuses sensuality at the heart of menswear sartorial icons.
Angora pullovers, fur coats worn belted or eel ankle boots: these designs make for a modern collection in a timeless palette of white, black, deep red, antique pink.
By playing with codes in an effortless yet refined manner, Zuhair Murad declares luxurious independence.
