Zuhair Murad Fall/Winter 2016/17 at Paris Haute Couture Week
Zuhair Murad’s fall 2016 couture show, entitled Boho Rapture, was set to the echoing strains of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody and was dripping with 70s glam rock and milkmaid chic. The collection was bursting at the seams with bell sleeves, flowing jumpsuits and velvet, but also petticoats, gypsy shawls and peasant smocks.
Murad experimented with a variety of fabrics and gilding, with a fair few ostrich feathers, but echoed his spring 16 couture show by emphasising femininity where possible and maintaining his firm relationship with beading and chantilly lace.
Murad drew his inspiration from some surprising sources to craft this collection, with some Klimpt-inspired hand-painted fabrics and patterns from the Caucasus and Persia. Typically autumnal, the colour scheme delved into rich berry shades and plenty of sheer appliqué, but Murad also played with Prussian blue and gold, as well as his signature pale pink and lime hues.
