Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad is cherished for his glamorous and romantic take on Haute Couture - think Jennifer Lopez wearing one of his delicately embroidered, nude-colored, floor-sweeping Haute Couture gowns, it seemed as if his latest “Golden Age” collection just went hand in hand with the Golden Globes.

This could also be said of his new ready-to-wear, as the Couture-ish detailing added an artisanal note to his red carpet worthy cocktail dresses - as we all know Murad doesn't design for the streets. In this context, the designer went all the way from the opulent Golden Age thematic to the dark romanticism of the Gothic period. As always, history of art and mythology inspired him: “ I looked at various paintings of gothic gardens, this is why I played with flower motives."

“My autumn-winter 2013/14 woman is half-angel and half-daemon. She has two personalities,” added Murad, referring to his carmine red and black embroidered evening dresses, that were crafted from contrasting pairings of velvet with tulle, lace with leather. Next to them, you'd find vintage-looking maxi-flower embroideries on stretched wool cocktail dresses with satin detailing or in a print-version on billowing muslin dresses, for a bohemian look. Further skin-revealing gowns were adorned by dots and stripes and thereby added a 60s touch.

"I love to see a woman's curves,” said Murad.  So do I, and I bet his formfitting ready-to-wear will soon be spotted on the hottest it-girls, glamorous actresses and pop stars alike.
