Zuhair Murad Haute Couture.

Thurs. 07/10/2014.

Count on Zuhair Murad and Elie Saab, The Lebanon born and based Couturiers both seem from Couture Season to Season to be travelling in Parallel lines. There's a Thread of Similarity running through their collections that is unmistakable. How exactly that comes about... Your Guess is as good as mine! Murad's Fall 2014 collection was Typically Beautiful, Full of the things we have come to expect from Murad... Lavish Gowns, Exquisite Embroideries, Stunning Detail... But that's about where it began and ended. There wasn't much more than a Procession of Candied Fairy Tales.

It Yielded Awesomely Pretty gowns, but like Saab, all that Glitter and Shine grew Tiresome, Quickly. With no Break from the Gilded Monotony, everything just degenerated into a Dissertation on Embellishment and Draping and Shine!  Not that there weren't some Jaw Slackening Moments, Surely there were. A Black Sequined Strapless column with a White Taffeta Pannier Embroidered in Stylized Black Zebra Stripes. A Strapless Storm Blue Ballgown with a Open Grid Sequined Overlay in Silver...And others. Again, Though, It was just too much of a Good thing. And that can cause one to be Bloated by the Excess. It would do Murad AND Saab to Inject some Less Sparkly options into their Haute Couture collections. These Galas of Evening Finery can only Entertain for so long!

That's All.
