The Cirque d”Hiver, a circus venue in Paris,

The Cirque d”Hiver, a circus venue in Paris, offered no shortage of inspiration for Zuhair Murad. Never one to shy away from spectacle, the designer once again expressed his vision with a generous amount of embellishment for day and evening. Certainly, it wasn”t such a leap for him to transpose the finery of costumes onto his red-carpet mermaid gowns, which had enough tattoo-effect embroidery (beading onto skin-toned netting) to dazzle from a great distance. All those strategically placed acanthus leaves on skin-baring bodices gave the impression of burlesque lite. Graphic stripes were less risqué but more successful; whether running down pantsuits, bisecting cocktail dresses, or swishing to and fro as beaded fringe, they had been reworked just enough to no longer evoke the big top.

The news, as opposed to the theater, could be found in the fabrications: lacquered macramé decorating sleeves and necklines, delicate threaded embroidery on tulle, an “optical” spotted jacquard (tiger-ish if not for its vivid blue hue), and padded cady openwork that did not serve any particular function besides feeling pleasant to touch. This final technique was the starring element on a sharp black vest dress with puffed sides. It may have been the least showy of all the looks, but it combined ringleader tailoring with feminine mystique.Welcome to visit my Coach Sale store: http://official.uscoachoutletbags.com
