Murad’s haute couture collection enchants everyone at Paris Fashion Week 22 showing that dreaming is still possible
A triumph of fantastic elegance
A few days ago, precisely from January 27, the Paris Fashion Week 2022 ended. Among the absent and fascinating news, it can be said without a shadow of a doubt that the inspired Zuhair Murad couture collection left an important mark. The Lebanese designer has almost literally decided to set sail with his creations on a dreamlike journey around the world, taking everyone to a show in which elegance, magic and fantasy were the great protagonists. Zahir’s goal is clear and openly revealed: “even if there are fewer opportunities than before, losing hope in the future is not an option for me” and, he continues, “now more than ever we need to dream and travel with our imagination to forget all the difficulties of this period. ”It can be said that few in the world of high fashion have more right to refer to concepts such as hope and resilience considering that Murad had to deal with the fire and the destruction of his atelier in Beirut during the tragic explosion in the port of the Lebanese capital on August 4, 2020. But dreaming with Zuhair Murad is possible. As an irreducible romantic he says: “We must dream, today more than ever … we must travel with our imagination, forget a little about ourselves and the difficulties that our reality is putting us under ”. His dream takes us straight to the 18th century. His spring summer 2022 haute couture collection is inspired by the great maritime explorations of pirates who wandered on the high seas chasing chimeras of lost treasures. An evocative adventure between coffers of ancient galleons and the depths of the ocean. Modern pirates paraded exhibiting garments decorated as works of art from silver, gold and pearls. Organza dresses, shorts wrapped in loose tulle skirts, long dresses tight at the waist with double leather belts almost like corsets, balloon sleeves, evocation of nautical charts and constellations: “My pirates are adventurous women, in search of treasures of life, “he said. “They could dream of love, or maybe they dream of a future full of joy and courage.” Ready to accept the invitation to a treasure of style to be discovered?
