Zuhair Murad’s collection takes us on a colorful quest! The Lebanese designer created looks that vary from classic black and white combinations to electric blue hues, turquoise and raspberry pink.

The collection missed the golden touches which were left aside, this time the designer delivering breath-taking silver gowns instead. Silk, shimmering patterns, embroidery, elegant lace, see-through fabrics, trains sweeping to the ground and dramatic prints build up a sheer haute-couture collection. Zuhair Murad has got us used to seeing beautiful delicate belts complementing the looks on the runway. If the spring collection was an ode to Greek golden leafs, this time around the designer opted for geometric silver shapes. Here are my favourite looks! Enjoy!  (more…)

The couture fashion week is here which only means that we get the chance to indulge ourselves with some breath-taking looks. I’m kicking off a series of posts dedicated to these collections starting with yesterday’s Dior runway presentation.

I have to admit that Dior has stopped being one of my favorite couture brands a while ago, perhaps because of the unflattering designs that seem quite repetitive or the red-carpet looks provided for the likes of Marion Cotillard and Jennifer Lawrence that fail to excite me. But, of course, that doesn’t stop me from checking out every new collection.

This Fall 2014 collection is a melange of looks, from elegant gowns to fur coats, modern short dresses and minimalist suits. What I really liked were the minimalist chic coats sweeping to the ground, the vivid accents of colors such as bright red and navy blue that lit up the understated black elegance and the utter comfort that exuded from these looks. It’s like Raf Simons found the perfect combination of couture and modern functionality! (more…)

I’ve been going through street style pictures ever since the fashion weeks started hoping that I would eventually find something that would blow my mind. That did not happen, but I did gather some very beautiful pictures. Masculinity, minimalism, monochrome looks, functionality…these are the things that I was looking forward to seeing at the fashion weeks among the too-colorful-too-kitsch ensembles and thankfully I found them. Enjoy! (more…)
