Haute Couture: Zuhair Murad SS15

Zuhair Murad : Runway - Paris Fashion Week - Haute Couture S/S 2015

 

Seems like most of the couture designers are heading down the embellishment path for this Spring and Summer season. I ain’t complaining. I’m totally in love with most of the collections that were showcased. This would be the last post on Paris Couture Week and highlights the work of Lebanese fashion designer Zuhair Murad, yet another favourite of mine. Take a look:

His collection was very much dream-like and flowy, utterly feminine and exotic with extensive bead work. He I must add that his collection also had a variety of hues in terms of the blues, pinks, yellows and off whites. I did also like the change of silhouettes and the additions of capes to some of the dresses.

Haute Couture: Elie Saab SS15

Elie Saab, another favourite designer of mine. I find that his designs, to an extent, are also like Hobeika’s – very much inspired by nature, flowy and feminine. Take a look at my picks of his collection:

Elie Saab Paris Haute Couture Spring Summer 2015 2

The entire collection consists of long flowy dresses and gowns – much to my liking. The detailed floral work are a beautiful complement to the understates hues of the designs.

Haute Couture: Georges Hobeika SS15

I’ve been in love with his designs for years. There really are¬†no words to describe how creative Georges Hobeika truly is. For those of you who are unaware of who he is, Hobeika is a Lebanese fashion designer of haute couture and ready-to-wear clothing. I became acquainted with his work when he came down to Sri Lanka a few years ago for a fashion show.

I did a review of one of his collections sometime last year (Monet’s Midnight Stroll) and so this would be my second but first for Spring and Summer 2015. Hobeika¬†showcased his latest designs at Paris Couture Week and here are a few of my favourites!

You’d notice that his entire collection consists of full and knee length gowns and dresses. It’s easy to admit that he hardly ever designs pants. His love for somber and soft shades are also once again highlighted. As for the silhouettes, I find that the full bloom effect complements the coming Spring season and is therefore far more than ideal and appealing.

I’d describe the collection as utterly and entirely feminine – dainty like and sweet unlike some of the other collection showcased by fashion designers this season. I also absolutely love the¬†intricate detailing in each of his designs, be the florals or the sparkles.

Hobeika has a liking towards using crepe and silk chiffon to create both captivating and sensual silhouettes for the ideal woman in mind. I find that this is also what makes his designs stand out from the rest.
